The Governor’s Office has eliminated the Grant-In-Aid program from their budget as one of the many cuts they proposed statewide. YOUR VOICE IS NEEDED to advocate for the program.
The Museums Alaska board has provided a template letter for you to send to your legislators. Feel free to use the template or write a letter of your own.
HOW TO SEND your letter:
1. Find out who your legislators are:
