Sorry for cross-posting, but…

Here’s a unique funding opportunity from the Institute of Museum & Library Services (IMLS) – a special initiative of their National Leadership Grants program.

From the IMLS’ description: “Successful projects will exemplify how libraries/archives/museums can provide trusted spaces for ongoing community dialog and exploration of the intersections between individual narratives. In addition, successful projects will demonstrate the viability of using and adapting existing approaches gleaned from the collective impact, social well-being, and community development arenas.”

Please see more info below.

Cheers,

Museums, libraries, and archives, as well as universities and non-profit organizations with experience in museum, library, or archives projects and expertise in community development work, are eligible to apply. Award amounts will range from $25,000 to $150,000, and a one-to-one cost share is required. More details can be found in the application guidelines<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001MzaO8rv7gXwkDvPjDpeHeD2mhUNrau7WBNaLS4Bd4VKg6cBoflHwMDP1grlRbW1ypPz8C47A3vSfT-ne64AdBfH_NVv75mLeDxrt-SG8YT-2OtcxQ6KS0wxb3kMZvbp-XP29QSmQiuikWWaqtu5wf1fny31RL7jNkUxdGExrYudfb--4UprE9PqymJCrHvmbUpOeFDvJKidGrTj4qQTsODrsb4QwKcwc97x2DZGycobd19Z_stBwHbeLgkLUmKOECbNnjZZujZqUMIF563iZiA==&c=fbF7o1QSLJl_SjNaJWfKHwefYeR3hDRbEaFq-FOwryOzBPtAFYST5Q==&ch=e59b1hAPDP6HYuDiQo4s22kwVE6v-076S6krWVOQetasSu7KGei2pQ==>.

The grant is part of IMLS’s Community Catalyst <http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001MzaO8rv7gXwkDvPjDpeHeD2mhUNrau7WBNaLS4Bd4VKg6cBoflHwMHmGrb8cgkA0Q66tJeqTRyWXhLOk9pJaEHyTO0d89X8kvfFwuIObboRch32kDubr08wj51J0AJ-KOwerIBraMMOpd2-Lywnqm2PIdBM1GO3cKqxSF6AKSNSuMDALD8e4rZ2GAWC06_87R7TQaaswX5z_rliv7VBUjb8uBN8rMQPg&c=fbF7o1QSLJl_SjNaJWfKHwefYeR3hDRbEaFq-FOwryOzBPtAFYST5Q==&ch=e59b1hAPDP6HYuDiQo4s22kwVE6v-076S6krWVOQetasSu7KGei2pQ==> initiative, which examines how libraries, archives, and museums can work collaboratively with their communities to improve community wellbeing.

“Libraries, archives, and museums have distinctive abilities and assets, such as their relationships, knowledge, and spaces, that can be leveraged to bring about positive community change,” said IMLS Director Dr. Kathryn K. Matthew. “The word ‘catalyst’ refers to how these essential institutions can spark ideas, energy, and action around a community’s vision.”

The Community Catalyst funding opportunity encourages applicants to use innovative, collaborative approaches and to explore new project partners within their communities. The definition of a proposed project’s community and desired impact is unique to each applicant. Successful proposals will draw on collective impact methodologies, social well-being indicators, asset mapping, and other approaches from the community development field.

In addition to receiving IMLS funding, applicants may be considered for technical assistance through the Environmental Protection Agency’s “Building Blocks: Sustainable Strategies<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001MzaO8rv7gXwkDvPjDpeHeD2mhUNrau7WBNaLS4Bd4VKg6cBoflHwMIkjE-2BUY8QXzRh7QQZsAkE_feJ8lRNp3NBRB8y2XewkGd9ZxJR_vAPpwv0ib8-yiFAv-1j2qjLZHoS_2-FOyQ_L15834rB-DW9otm7ebxuphuXI_V6IuPP4Ccldh9UHpU9F2WKfVwTKvZzlgWO_U4yYbtXOwClUQ==&c=fbF7o1QSLJl_SjNaJWfKHwefYeR3hDRbEaFq-FOwryOzBPtAFYST5Q==&ch=e59b1hAPDP6HYuDiQo4s22kwVE6v-076S6krWVOQetasSu7KGei2pQ==> for Small Cities and Rural Areas and Supporting Equitable Development” program.
