The mission of the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) is to advance, support, and empower America’s museums, libraries, and related organizations through grantmaking, research, and policy development. Guiding the grantmaking are three agency-level goals with two objectives each.
Goal 1: Champion Lifelong Learning
Goal 2: Strengthen Community Engagement
Goal 3: Advance Collections Stewardship and Access
The Museum Grants for African American History and Culture Program is designed to support the achievement of these agency-level goals and to facilitate the delivery of significant results consistent with the IMLS federal authorizing legislation. Each award that IMLS makes through Museum Grants for African American History and Culture will align with one of these agency-level goals and one associated objective and will thus contribute meaningfully to the achievement of both program and agency-level goals.
