The Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) – Native American Library Services: Basic Grants

Country:  United States

Amount:  $6,000-$10,000

Total Funds Available: $2,200,000

Term:  1 year

Deadline:  April 2021


The goal of the FY 2020 Native American Library Services Basic Grants Program is to support existing library operations and maintain core library services. The Native American Library Services Basic Grants Program no longer has a separate Education/Assessment Option. Funding for tribal library staff to attend library-related continuing education courses or training workshops; attend or give presentations at conferences related to library services; and/or hire a consultant for an onsite professional library assessment can be included in the Library Services Plan and the Budget. No more than $3,000 of the $6,000 – $10,000 award may be allotted for education/assessment activities or travel. If an applicant does not include funding for education and assessment activities or travel, a grant request of $6,000 – $10,000 may still be requested.
