Application Deadline Oct. 22
The Texas Historical Commission (THC) is offering another round of History Museum Grants to Texas’ small history museums. A total of $10,000 in grant monies is available. Individual grants may not exceed $1,000, and a one-to-one cash or in-kind matching contribution is required.
Museums under county governance are eligible for these funds.
The grant program helps small history museums (with budgets of $350,000 or less) support projects that further the preservation of artifacts in their collections. Grant information and applications are now available on the THC’s Web site at www.thc.state.tx.us; the application deadline is Oct. 22. Grant recipients will be announced in February, following the agency’s January quarterly meeting.
Eligible projects include, but are not limited to, collections management software, environmental monitoring equipment, storage cabinets and shelves, photo digitization and duplication, acid free tissue, acid free folders and boxes, specialized cleaning supplies, UV light bulb covers and conservation treatments.
