Grants to Hawaii nonprofit organizations to improve core library services and adopt new technologies in Native Hawaiian communities. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The purpose of the funding is to improve digital services, improve educational programs, preserve, and revitalize Native Hawaiian culture and language.
Information needs and approaches to meeting them are evolving at an unprecedented pace in all communities, and to operate within this environment effectively for the benefit of their users, libraries must be able to both strengthen existing services and move quickly to adopt new and emerging technologies. Reflecting IMLS’s agency-level goals of championing lifelong learning, strengthening community engagement, and advancing collections stewardship and access, the goals and objectives for this program are:
Goal 1: Improve digital services to support needs for education, workforce development, economic and business development, health information, critical thinking skills, and digital literacy skills.
Goal 2: Improve educational programs related to specific topics and content areas of interest to library patrons and community-based users.
Goal 3: Enhance the preservation and revitalization of Native Hawaiian culture and language.
