From the Office of Museum Services

It’s never too early to start planning your next IMLS museum grant application. Two new IMLS publications provide useful information to inspire you as you consider the various ways that IMLS might support your programs, whether your work is community-based, or related to STEM, early childhood, collections stewardship, or something else!

Want to get a head start?

Explore the newly released FY 2018 Guide to Museum Funding Programs and Opportunities to learn about our grant programs, national awards, and technical assistance programs, including the Museum Assessment Program (MAP) and the Collections Assessment for Preservation Program (CAP). The publication provides a handy overview of IMLS museum grant and award programs with deadlines, award amounts, and staff contact information.

Want to delve more deeply?

Did you know that the IMLS museum office engaged more than 400 of your peers to review grant applications last year?  This is just some of the information in the IMLS Office of Museum Services Update for FY 2016. The publication also provides valuable insights into the types of projects supported by IMLS museum grants, and it highlights special initiatives making a difference across the country.
