Museum Flood Funding Program

The AMA is pleased to administer the Museum Flood Funding Program in collaboration with Alberta Culture and Tourism to aid in the recovery of Alberta's heritage community.

About the Museum Flood Funding Program:

Many museums in Alberta were affected by severe weather and floods in June 2013. The Government of Alberta is committed to supporting recovery and rebuilding in every impacted community through its Provincial Recovery Framework. The Alberta Museums Association (AMA) is pleased to administer a funding program in collaboration with Alberta Culture to aid in the recovery of Alberta's heritage community.

Museums are leading contributors to the social, cultural, and educational fabric of Alberta, and the Museum Flood Funding Program will work to minimize the short- and long-term effects of the floods on museum collections and prepare institutions for future disaster planning. The Alberta museum community appreciates the Government of Alberta's commitment to flood-impacted non-profit and cultural institutions, and we will continue to work together to ensure museums have the resources they need for their vital role with communities.
