The Meadowlands Museum is proud to be the recipient of a 2020 COVID-19 Response Grant from the NJ Council for the Humanities, which was made available through the CARES Act funding that was allocated through the NEH.  This Grant covers some of the Museum's General Operating Expenses during this time of the COVID -19 pandemic.
