Guiding the grantmaking are three agency-level goals with two objectives each:
This program is designed to support Indian tribes and organizations that primarily serve and represent Native Hawaiians in sustaining heritage, culture, and knowledge. The program supports projects such as exhibitions, educational services and programming, workforce professional development, organizational capacity building, and collections stewardship. As a result, the Native American/Native Hawaiian Museum Services Program has significant potential to generate positive societal impact through project activities undertaken as part of the grant-funded work and activities that may be complementary to the project.
IMLS does not prescribe the type, focus, reach, or scale of societal impact required for each project, but the questions to be addressed in the application Narrative and the review criteria reflect the agency’s commitment to both advancing knowledge and understanding and to ensuring that the federal investment made through grants generates benefits to society.
