Applications Open for Native American Library Services Enhancement Grants
Deadline: May 1, 2018
The Institute of Museum and Library Services is accepting applications for projects that support libraries and archives serving Native Americans and Native Alaskans. Native American Library Services Enhancement Grants augment existing library services or implement new library services for eligible Native American libraries.
Successful grant projects will align with one of three project categories: Preservation and Revitalization; Educational Programming; or Digital Services. Funded projects include those that:
- support individuals' needs for education, lifelong learning, workforce development, and digital literacy skills;
- improve the quality of and access to library and information services; or
- enhance the skills of the current library workforce and leadership.
Native American Library Services Enhancement Grants are competitive grants of up to $150,000 for two years. They are available to any library that has an active basic grant. A grantee with an active enhancement grant may not apply for another enhancement grant that would have an overlapping period of performance.
