Grants to USA and territories museums, nonprofit organizations, IHEs, and tribal organizations to develop the organizational capacity of African American museums. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding may be used for projects that nurture museum professionals, build institutional capacity, and increase access to museum and archival collections at African American museums and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
The mission of the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) is to advance, support, and empower America’s museums, libraries, and related organizations through grantmaking, research, and policy development. Guiding IMLS' grantmaking are three agency-level goals with two objectives each.
Goal 1: Champion Lifelong Learning
Goal 2: Strengthen Community Engagement
Goal 3: Advance Collections Stewardship and Access
The Museum Grants for African American History and Culture Program is designed to support the achievement of these agency-level goals and to facilitate the delivery of significant results consistent with the IMLS federal authorizing legislation (20 U.S.C. § 9101 et seq.; in particular, § 9173 (Museum services activities)); and 20 U.S.C. § 80r (National Museum of African American History and Culture), in particular 20 U.S.C. § 80r-5 (Educational and liaison programs). Each award that IMLS makes through Museum Grants for African American History and Culture will align with one of these agency-level goals and one associated objective and will thus contribute meaningfully to the achievement of both program and agency-level goals.
