Guidelines Available for IMLS Museum Grants for African American History and Culture
Deadline: January 15, 2009
The Institute of Museum and Library Services (http://imls.gov/) has announced the availability of guidelines and application forms for the 2009 Museum Grants for African American History and Culture, a grant program that enhances institutional capacity and sustainability in the nation’s African-American museums through professional training, technical assistance, internships, outside expertise, and other assistance.
Successful applications will focus on developing or strengthening knowledge, skills, and other expertise of current staff at African-American museums; attracting and retaining professionals with the skills needed to strengthen African-American museums; and attracting new staff to African-American museum practice and providing them with the expertise needed to sustain themselves in the museum field.
A two-week deadline extension is available to any institution in an area that has received either a “Major Disaster Declaration” or an “Emergency Declaration” by FEMA within twelve months prior to the grant deadline. For applicants to Museum Grants for African American History and Culture, this would mean that the museum must be in an area that received the “Major Disaster Declaration” or the “Emergency Declaration” after January 15, 2008.
Application guidelines and instructions are available at the IMLS Web site.
