City Museum seeks applicants for the Juneau History Grant

July 8, 2021 – FYI

The Juneau History Grant is now open to applicants. Any person, or group of persons, with a good idea for preserving or sharing Juneau’s history and/or culture who has the time and energy to follow it through to completion is encouraged to apply for funding to support some of the expenses of their project. Applications are due yearly on October 1. Apply online here.

Examples of Juneau History Grant projects include: live performances, public presentations, recordings, publications, community signage or memorials, digitization of historical information and any other project that produces a tangible product that can be shared with the public. It is assumed that most of the labor for a project will be performed by volunteers and that the grant will be used to help defray the costs of services and supplies needed to support this effort.

The mission of the Juneau History Grant (JHG) is to support and encourage research, learning, dissemination, recording and archiving of all types of information pertaining to the human history of the City and Borough of Juneau. Funds for the JHG are managed though the Juneau Community Foundation and are administered by the Juneau-Douglas City Museum and an advisory committee comprised of local community members with particular interest and/or expertise in Juneau history projects and research.

The Juneau History Grant committee will read and judge proposed projects based on the criteria listed in the JHG application instructions. JHG projects are typically funded at the $400-$1200 level; however the committee will consider all worthy projects within its ability to subsidize. The Juneau History Grant is a collaborative programs of the Juneau-Douglas City Museum, The Friends of the Juneau-Douglas City Museum, and the Juneau Community Foundation. The annual due date for applications is October 1.
