Request a Grant Writer

Grants starting at $5,000 to USA Indian tribes and nonprofit organizations serving Native Hawaiians for projects that sustain culture, knowledge, and heritage. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for exhibitions, professional development, educational programming and services, and collections stewardship.

Indicators (characteristics) of successful projects in the NANH program are as follows:

  • Institutional Impact: The project addresses an identified need or challenge facing an organization.
  • In-depth Knowledge: The project design reflects a thorough understanding of current practice and knowledge about the subject matter.
  • Project-based Design: The work plan consists of a set of logical, interrelated activities tied directly to addressing the key need or challenge identified in the application.
  • Demonstrable Results: The project generates measurable results that tie directly to the need or challenge it was designed to address.

Projects may be structured at any of several stages of maturity: exploratory, piloting, scaling, or mainstreaming. A proposed project’s activities may be brand new to the institution, or they may implement learnings, perspectives, or competencies acquired during a previous project. A project may be an effort to intensify the impact of an approach that has been tested and found to be effective, or it may be structured as an opportunity to expand a function or activity that has been deemed successful.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

To be eligible for an award under this NANH notice of funding opportunity, you must be:
- An Indian tribe or
- An organization that primarily serves and represents Native Hawaiians.

For the purpose of funding under this program, “Indian tribe” means any tribe, band, nation, or other organized group or community, including any Alaska native village, regional corporation, or village corporation (as defined in, or established pursuant to, the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (43 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.)), which is recognized as eligible for the special programs and services provided by the United States to Indians because of their status as Indians. A list of eligible entities is available from the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

For purposes of funding under this program, an “organization that primarily serves and represents Native Hawaiians” is any nonprofit organization that primarily serves and represents Native Hawaiians, as defined in 20 U.S.C. § 7517. In order for a museum to be eligible, it must demonstrate that it is established as an organization that meets this statutory eligibility criteria.

IMLS recognizes the potential for valuable contributions to the overall goals of the Native American/Native Hawaiian Museum Services program by entities that do not meet the eligibility requirements above. Although such entities may not serve as the lead applicant organization, they are encouraged to participate in projects as partners. Such entities may, for example, assist the lead applicant with project activities.

Federally operated libraries and museums may not apply for Native American/Native Hawaiian Museum Services grants, but they may serve as nonessential partners to applicants if they do not receive IMLS grant funds as a result of the project.
