NASHVILLE, Tenn. – State Rep. Kevin Raper, R-Cleveland, today announced a $50,000 grant to the Museum and Cultural Center at 5ive Points.

The funds are part of a larger $5 million appropriation approved by members of the General Assembly for the Tennessee State Museum in the 2023-24 state budget.

“The Museum at 5ive Points tells the story of our region,” Raper said. “Our community has a captivating history, and these grants will help make that story more accessible to residents and visitors. I thank the Tennessee State Museum’s work in granting these funds out to 5ive Points and organizations like it around the state.”

The funds must be used for building and land improvements, including structural changes and renovations.

Out of 170 applications totaling $12.5 million in requests, 108 museums across 58 counties were granted a total of $5 million in full or partial awards from the State Museum, according to Ashley Howell, the executive director of the Tennessee State Museum.

The money was made available to 501(c)(3) nonprofits or museums affiliated with government entities through the Tennessee General Assembly’s 2023-24 Appropriations Act. Each request had a minimum of $5,000 in improvements and a maximum of $100,000. The projects covered by the grants have a completion deadline of June 30, 2024.
