MMAPSS Project Application Form 2020 - 2021

Online Project Application

2020 Support for Bushfire affected organisations:

In support of those organisations that have been and are being 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

MMAPSS Overview:

MMAPSS is an annual outreach program of grants and internships jointly funded by the Australian Government and the ANMM. Funding is available; up to $15,000 for projects and up to $3,000 for internships, for not for profit organisations that actively care for, promote and display Australia’s maritime heritage.

Many cultural institutions around the country seek to care for, promote, interpret and display maritime items of historical and national significance. The museum supports and encourages these efforts to conserve and display unique local objects for today’s audiences and future generations.

Since 1995, the scheme has given over $1,800,000 in support of over 440 projects to organisations in Queensland, New South Wales (including Norfolk and Lord Howe Islands), Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory.

MMAPSS provide grants up to $15,000 for approved projects that fall into one of these categories:

- Collection management (registration, documentation and storage)

- Conservation (preservation, vessel restoration, conservation work/treatments and professional assessments)

- Presentation (research, development of exhibitions, establishing interpretative displays and workshops)

- Development of relevant education or public programs which make collections more accessible to audiences

- Museological training for paid or unpaid workers of not-for-profit organisations caring for Australia's maritime collections.

Internships funding of up to $3,000 is available to help develop museological skills and knowledge to increase standards of practice in caring for and managing maritime collections. For an internship, please visit the ANMM website for details of how to apply. Please note: Internship applications cannot be submitted via this online system.
