Bus Subsidy Program

We have exhausted all funds for the 2019-2020 school year.

There are two kinds of bus subsidies to help cover transportation expenses to the museum. Limited funding is available to offset the transportation cost of a field trip occurring between October 1, 2019 and April 30, 2020. Only one subsidy per school per year. Grants will be given on a first-application-received basis until funds are gone. Payment from the museum will be made in the form of a reimbursement to the district or school after the field trip has occurred.
