DHM Selected for Michigan H.O.P.E. Grant for Shutdown Relief

Over the course of the recent shutdown, the Dearborn Historical Museum was elated to learn that it had been selected for a Michigan H.O.P.E. Grant. The grant provided financial assistance to the Museum during the course of the shutdown and helped to ease the blow of the cancellation of the Museum’s annual Pioneer School Program.

Made possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities through the Michigan Humanities Council, this CARES Act funding helped to partially support the salaries of the Museum’s five part-time staff members over the course of the shutdown. Retaining these staff members allowed the DHM to produce important digital content over the course of the shutdown and stay involved in engaging the local Dearborn community.

The Dearborn Historical Museum would like to thank everyone who helped to make this grant possible, especially the Michigan Humanities Council, National Endowment for the Humanities, Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Representative Debbie Dingell, Senator Debbie Stabenow, and Senator Gary Peters.
