Grants and Awards 

We regret to share that the funding that used to be available for travel and mini grants administered by MANY from the New York State Council on the Arts is no longer administered by MANY. For information about Travel Grants and Mini Grants please contact NYSCA directly www.nysca.gov. 

Awards of Merit 

New York’s museums and heritage organizations are many and diverse. These institutions collect and interpret art, history, natural history, science, technology and culture. These valuable organizations provide opportunities for inquiry, engagement, inspiration and education about the state’s cultural and natural heritage.

The Awards of Merit program acknowledges outstanding programs and individuals who have made the state's museum community richer and more relevant. They reward the innovative efforts of staff and volunteers and they provide encouragement for the development of new and remarkable projects. 

The call for the 2017 Awards of Merit to be awarded at our 2018 Annual Conference will be available in September 2017.
