2020 support for bushfire affected organisations:
In support of those organisations affected by the summer of 2019–20 bushfire crises across the country, a priority weighting will be given by the Selection Committee to applications submitted by these organisations.
To demonstrate that your organisation has been affected by the summer of 2019–20 bush fires, please include details in the letter of support from the Head of your organisation which outline how the bush fires have affected your organisation.
If in the judgement of the Selection Committee the organisation submitting an application has been affected by the summer of 2019–20 bush fires an extra point will be given against each of the following selection criteria:
• Relevance to a specified target audience & the community in general
• Quality of the project in terms of its aims, content, rationale and likely benefit
Projects and applications will still need to abide by the MMAPSS eligibility criteria.
As always, MMAPSS is open to applications for cash grants, in-kind (non-cash) support and internships.
Applicants from organisations which have not been affected by the summer of 2019–20 bush fires are strongly encouraged to apply as usual.
For more information, a Q&A about this is available at: www.sea.museum/grants
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.
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 available to volunteers or those working within eligible organisations to develop professional networks and skills. Up to $3,000 for up to 2 weeks at the Australian National Maritime Museum or another collecting institution. Read about one interns' experience on the ANMM Blog.
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.
Check the Australian National Maritime Museum website for more details on how to apply.
