Museums across the United States have six opportunities in the coming months to apply for grants from the nation’s primary source of federal museum funding. The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) is now accepting applications for six grant programs:

Museum Grants for African American History and Culture
Native American/Native Hawaiian Museum Services
Inspire! Grants for Small Museums
Museums for America
Museums Empowered
National Leadership Grants for Museums

“American museums play an important cultural role in our nation, making significant contributions to improving the quality of life in their communities,” said Paula Gangopadhyay, Deputy Director of Museum Services. “IMLS grants enable museums and related organizations to strengthen their institutional capacities, expand staff professional development, explore innovative solutions to addressing relevant issues, and achieve positive outcomes for themselves and the people they serve. We are very pleased to empower museums with the FY 2020 funding opportunities so that they can continue to serve as active community partners.”
