2019 Collection Needs Assessment Program - Supplies & Site Assessment Grants

 


 


The NYSCA/GHHN Collection Needs Assessment Program is a NYSCA/GHHN grant partnership program which provides two opportunities for museums across New York State. 

Site Assessment Program
The grant will support professional services for a collections consultant who will come to your organization for a half-day site visit focusing on 
a collections related topic. The consultant will discuss various areas 
of stewardship with the site including identifying your specific collections issues, suggesting and prioritizing basic steps to improve care of your collections. A written report will follow the consultation.
Maximum award: $650

Supplies Program
Applicants who have consulted with an appropriate professional may request funds to purchase collections management supplies. Supplies may include, but are not limited to: storage boxes, acid-free tissue paper, artifact trays, dividers, UV filtering film, Tyvek sheeting, tape, tags, labels, and environmental monitors. Supply requests for archival or library collections will not be supported.
Maximum award: $500

Applications are due June 3, 2019 for both the Site Assessments and Supplies Grant Programs. Portal will open May 20, 2019. There will be only 1 deadline in 2019.
