New supports for community museum and cultural venues

The provincial government is providing funding to help community museums and cultural venues impacted by COVID-19.

The COVID-19 Operational Support Program for Community Museums and Cultural Venues provides support for operational expenses to help compensate for reduced revenue due to the pandemic.

“We know that COVID-19 has impacted gathering limits and visitors to Prince Edward Island, which in turn affects community museums and cultural venues. Community museums and cultural venues are an important part of the Island that share our history and celebrate our artists and we want to help these spaces keep their doors open.” 

- Minister of Economic Growth, Tourism and Culture Matthew MacKay. 

Funding up to a maximum of $2,500 is available for expenses. The deadline to apply is September 30, 2021.
