WASHINGTON, DC—Museums and related organizations across the United States have six opportunities in the coming months to apply for grants from the nation’s primary source of federal funding for museum services. The Institute of Museum and Library Services is now accepting applications for six grant programs:
Applications for all six programs are due on November 15, 2022. Applicants should review the notices of funding opportunity carefully to understand each program’s specific goals and objectives, which reflect the agency’s focus on championing lifelong learning, strengthening community engagement, and advancing collections stewardship and access.
“IMLS funding supports exceptional programs aligned with lifelong learning, professional development, and community engagement,” said Laura Huerta Migus, Deputy Director of the Office of Museum Services. “Museums are increasingly adding community voices into their collections and archives to match the preservation of history and the presentation of knowledge and culture to the needs of individual communities. Each year the programs, activities, and partnerships IMLS funds increasingly demonstrate the expanded inclusivity and accessibility of museums.”
Prospective grant applicants are invited to view webinars on how to choose the appropriate funding opportunity and to learn more about each grant program. Visit the IMLS website for a listing of on-demand webinars.
