Application Guidelines Now Available for IMLS Museum Grants for
African American History and Culture

Application Deadline: January 15, 2009

The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) is pleased to
announce 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 important tools. Successful applications will
focus on one or more of the following goals:

    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 them 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 12 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.

IMLS staff will be hosting two audio conference calls to provide an
opportunity for prospective applicants to learn more about the
Museum Grants for African American History and Culture program. The
calls will be held on the following dates and times:

    Tuesday, November 18 at 2pm ET
    Thursday, December 4 at 2pm ET
