Museum Grants for African American History and Culture Program

by:

The Institute of Museum and Library Services, otherwise referred to as IMLS, is an independent agency of the United States Federal government that was established during the fiscal year 1996.

The programs and objectives of the IMLS are designed to help them realize their overall agency mission which is to "create strong libraries and museums that connect people with information and ideas."

In addition, the IMLS also consistently works towards the administering grant programs that will advance the value of museums and libraries as essential resources for a world of learners.

With that, the Institute of Museum and Library Services has established a funding opportunity to support the Museum Grants for African American History and Culture Program wherein they intend to provide the African American museum staff with added knowledge and ability in all the areas of management, operations, programming, collections care, and other museum skills.

The program also seeks to improve the African American museum community's capacity and sustainability by way of provision of professional training services, technical assistance, internship programs, outside expertise and other tools.

The IMLS believes that the program will work optimally if it will focus one or more of the following goals:

a) The development and strengthening of the knowledge, skills, and other expertise of the existing staff member at African American museums.
