IMLS/Urban Institute Museum Public Finance Survey is now LIVE!
- Museums of all kinds, from art to zoos, are encouraged to
participate in an important new study of public funding in the United
States. The survey will provide a detailed look at the size and scope of
public support for museums from federal, state and local governments.
The survey will also help identify some of the challenges this type of
support may present and what funding gaps exist. This short,
confidential survey is being conducted by The Urban Institute, a
non-partisan economic and social policy research organization based in
Washington, D.C through a cooperative agreement with the Institute of
Museum and Library Services (IMLS). The survey is part of a larger study
to examine how public funding is impacting museum services in the United
States. To fill out the survey, go to www.museumpublicfin ance.org
