IMPORTANT UPDATE: Re: MAS Small Project Grant and Government of Sask Support

MAS is pleased to announce that the Government of Saskatchewan is once again providing funding support to the Saskatchewan museum sector, which has significantly increased the funds available through our granting program. The Ministry of Parks, Culture & Sport is working with MAS to ensure that this financial assistance is as widely accessible as possible, and with this, it has also changed a few of the specifications and deadlines.

The Museum Improvement Micro Grant for Community Museums (formerly known as the MAS Small Project Grant) guideline changes include:

  • The application deadline remains the same: May 3, 2024
  • The eligibility criteria remains the same; all small capital projects will be adjudicated separately
  • The maximum funds available per project have INCREASED from $1,000.00 to $2,000.00
  • The project must be complete by November 15, 2024
  • Retroactive expenses are not eligible (only expenses incurred after June 1, 2024 will be considered)
  • The final report must be submitted by December 1, 2024
  • The priorities for projects remain the same, with the addition of technology upgrades
  • Successful grant recipients must provide evidence of acknowledgement of support from MAS and the Government of Saskatchewan

MAS wishes to thank the Government of Saskatchewan for their support of museums in Saskatchewan again this year with the Museum Improvement Microgrant for Community Museums. The updated information including guidelines, dates, and the application form, is available on our website.
