In July of 2018, the IAMLA received important funding from the State of California. Former Governor Jerry Brown signed the state budget, which included a $250,000 allocation from State Senator Anthony Portantino for the Italian American Museum of Los Angeles. Senator Portantino, a proud Italian American, is the author of State Resolutions Commemorating Italian American Heritage in California, and is a long-time supporter of the IAMLA.

The grant is enabling the IAMLA to: Update its permanent exhibitions; Bring its collection online and thereby enable the public to access its contents; Make improvements to the museum that enhance the visitor experience; Expand educational curricula; Complete additional preservation work to the building where the museum is located, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places
