GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Five years ago, in the midst of the city's financial crisis, Grand Rapids Public Museum officials were told they had to learn to survive on their own.
The City's $4 million annual subsidy went away.
On Tuesday, the Grand Rapids City Commission voted to give the Museum some help.
The Museum will receive $400,000 annually from the City for operations for the next three years.
Funds will come in the form of a rent check for the City and Kent County joint Community Archives and Research Center.
City officials said the Museum is moving along with its transition to being self-supporting.
The State is expected to approve additional money to help with the transition.
