Museum Grants for African American History and Culture - #45.309

Grant funds may be used to support a wide range of museum activities, including staff exchange, mentoring, education, or training, or other strategies that increase the skills needed to improve African American museum services; attendance at museum conferences and other professional meetings; enrollment in courses or workshops; technical assistance or consultation with museum or business professionals from outside the institution; and organizational support for the development and implementation of internship and fellowship programs (awards are not made to individuals). IMLS grant funds may be used only for costs directly related to the project, such as costs for salaries for museum personnel, project supplies and materials, membership fees, telecommunication services and equipment, and other fees or expenses associated with the project. Grant funds may not be used for construction, contributions to endowment funds, social activities, ceremonies, entertainment, collection acquisition, fundraising costs, or pre-grant costs.

Costs will be determined in accordance with OMB Circular No. A-87 for State and local governments. OMB Circular No. A-21 for educational institutions and other nonprofit organizations also applies.
