$20 Million in Museum Grants Available

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources has announced the next round of capital grants under the Illinois Public Museum Capital Grants Program. Museums that are operated by townships and other units of government are eligible for funding assistance under this grant program to improve museum facilities and develop new exhibits.
The maximum grant award for qualifying projects is $750,000. Projects will be reviewed solely on the merit of the application as presented; no changes to the funding request will be initiated during the review process. The level of local matching funds required for each project is based on the level of attendance at the applicant museum during the preceding calendar year. 

A total of $20 million will be awarded. The deadline to apply for this round of museum grants is 5:00 pm on Monday, February 3, 2014. Copies of the application forms and more information can be obtained by contacting the Division of Grants, Illinois Department of Natural Resources, One Natural Resources Way, Springfield IL 62702-1271.

If you have any questions, you can call the IDNR Grants Office at (217) 782-7481 or email DNR.Grants@Illinois.gov.
