IMLS Accepting Applications for Native American/Native Hawaiian
Museum Services Grants

Application Deadline: April 1, 2009

The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) is accepting
grant applications to the Native American/Native Hawaiian (NANH)
Museum Services program. NANH grants support projects that promote
enhanced learning and innovation within museums and museum-related
organizations, and are available to federally recognized Indian
tribes, Alaskan Native Villages and corporations, and organizations
that primarily serve and represent Native Hawaiians.

Grant funding for the NANH program ranges from $5,000-$50,000, and
provides opportunities for Native American tribes and Native
Hawaiian organizations to sustain heritage, culture, and knowledge
by strengthened museum services in the following areas:

    *   Programming: Services and activities that support the
        educational mission of museums and museum-related

    *   Professional development: Education or training that builds
        the skills, knowledge, and professional capacity of
        staff-paid or volunteer-who provide or manage museum service

    *   Enhancement of museum services: Support for activities that
        enable and improve museum services.

Awards will be announced in September 2009. For more information,
