PA Museums has learned that the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission's (PHMC) 2019-2020 Cultural and Historical Support grants have been approved by the Governor's Budget Office for payment. Grantees have been notified, and funding should be forthcoming.
PA Museums signed on to a letter prepared by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM) requesting museums be included in any additional pandemic relief legislation. Statewide, regional, and national associations were invited to support this letter. There may be a call to action issued more broadly later in the summer.
