Request a Grant Writer

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.

  • Objective 1.1: Support the establishment and refinement of digital infrastructure, platforms, and technology.
  • Objective 1.2: Support preservation and access to information and resources through digitization.

Goal 2: Improve educational programs related to specific topics and content areas of interest to library patrons and community-based users.

  • Objective 2.1: Support the identification of the needs and interests of learners.
  • Objective 2.2: Support the development and implementation of classes, events, teaching tools, resources, and other educational services.
  • Objective 2.3: Support the evaluative assessment of library-based approaches to teaching and facilitation.

Goal 3: Enhance the preservation and revitalization of Native Hawaiian culture and language.

  • Objective 3.1: Support the development of efficient strategic partnerships within, across, and outside Native Hawaiian communities.
  • Objective 3.2: Support the preservation of content of unique and specific value to Native Hawaiian communities.
  • Objective 3.3: Support the sharing of content within and/or beyond Native Hawaiian communities.
