    (SALT LAKE CITY, Utah) — Utah Arts & Museums has granted $195,900 to museums around the state. Applications were accepted from museums for development and project grants. The purpose of these grants is to help museums develop projects to improve their professional skills in accepted museum practices; better preserve, exhibit and interpret their collections; and improve service to their communities. All funded museums are Certified Utah Museums.

    “Utah museums are an integral component of the state’s cultural life, informing and entertaining millions of patrons each year,” said Lynnette Hiskey, Utah Arts & Museums Director. “We’re pleased to offer this funding to help museums reach audiences.” Previously funded projects have supported collection management, storage and cataloging, marketing and public relations, and temporary staff to carry out the project.

    Development grants are for museums open fewer than 1,000 hours per year, with a maximum award of $1,000. Project Support grants have a maximum award of $6,000 and require some level of matching funds. Specific grant guidelines and requirements are available at artsandmuseums.utah.gov under “Opportunities” and then “Grants.” Applications are reviewed by the Utah Arts & Museums Office of Museum Services Advisory Board.

    For more information, please contact Katie Woslager at kwoslager@utah.gov or 801.236.7550, or visit Utah Arts & Museums at artsandmuseums.utah.gov. The next deadline for Museum Grants will be in March 2014.
