Are you eligible?
If your organisation has objects or collections that contribute to an understanding of Australia, its people and developments, which have influenced its maritime history, and you need support to care for and to provide quality public access to them, you could be eligible for a project grant of up to $15,000 or an internship grant of up to $3,000.
MMAPSS has been supporting remote and regional organisations since 1995. The funding cap per grant has now been increased.
MMAPSS Grants cover a wide variety of projects
Grants are now available to support a variety of project types in the areas of collection management, conservation, presentation and the development of relevant education or public programs.
Are you a volunteer? Consider an Internship.
Grants are also available to volunteers or those working within eligible organisations to develop professional networks and skills.
Get ANMM experts to help directly
The program also delivers in-kind support. In-kind support is non-cash support. For example: in the form of ANMM expertise providing opinion, review or on-site assistance to deliver a workshop, or to develop a policy document such as a Vessel Management Plan.
The program’s Guidelines, Grant Application Form, Internship Application Form and a sample Acquittal Form are available from the Australian National Maritime Museum's website.
