Join us for a free information session on the Collections Assessment Grant, a new grant line from CT Humanities in partnership with Conservation ConneCTion and the Connecticut State Library.
The Collections Assessment Grant Program (CAG) provides small and mid-sized museums with a free assessment of their museum or archive collections. Successful grant applicants will receive a half-day site visit from a museum curator or archivist who will examine collections on exhibit and in storage, as well as policies and procedures related to collection care and management. The resulting report can help grantees improve the care and management of their collections, decide where to invest limited resources, increase board interest in collections issues, and support long-range planning for collections.
Priority will be given to organizations with budgets under $50,000. Institutions with a budget exceeding $250,000 are not eligible. For more information about the CAG, visit the grant website.
