State Historical Society of North Dakota Makes Grants Available Through ND Museum Assessment Program

BISMARCK ó The State Historical Society of North Dakota is accepting applications for North Dakota Museum Assessment Program grants. The North Dakota Museum Assessment Program is part of the Cultural Heritage Grant Program and provides local and regional museums with opportunities to complete in-depth reviews of their organizations, develop long-range plans, and complete a project. Applications are due by Friday, Sept. 6, 2013.

To qualify for a grant, a museum must operate on a permanent basis for educational and historical purposes and care for historical objects and materials. The museumís objects and materials must be available to the public through regular exhibits or programs in the facility that it owns and operates. The museum must have at least one professional staff member or a full-time equivalent whose responsibilities relate solely to the museumís services and operations. The museum must be open on a regular basis with established hours and schedules. Preference will be given to museums organized as official county museums, but other eligible museums are encouraged to apply.

Grant guidelines and application forms are available on the State Historical Society of North Dakota website at history.nd.gov or by request. For more information contact Grants and Contracts Officer Amy Munson at 701.328.3573 or email at amunson@nd.gov.
