Supporting Museums – Serving Communities:  An Evaluation of the Museums for America Program

Museums for America (MFA) is the largest IMLS grant program for museums. In 2009 and 2010, RMC Research Corporation carried out an independent evaluation of the program and found that it has had an immediate and sustained impact on museum users.

Through analysis of administrative data and a survey, the study covered the first year (2004) of the MFA grant program through 2010. During that period, IMLS received 3,404 MFA applications from 1,817 eligible museums, awarding 1,191 grants to 830 museums, a total of $123 million in funding.
