MuseumFilter: Indemnity for a Museum Loan

The Getty Institute is planning a new exhibition, and the following caught my eye: "Supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities." What does an indemnity mean in the museum loan context? I know that the Getty must show proof of insurance to borrow an artwork, but how can the indemnity be donated? Does it mean that the FCAH pays the premium to insure the exhibits while the Getty has them?
