Institute Of Museum And Library Services
The Institute’s Connecting to Collections grants help collecting institutions such as museums, libraries, and archives to be good stewards of their collections. The collaborative statewide implementation grants assist in providing safe conditions for collections, the development of emergency plans, assigning responsibility for collections care, and marshal public and private support for and raise public awareness about collections care. These grants are aimed at fostering effective partnerships among organizations that have a strong commitment to shared collection stewardship goals. The program will fund ongoing or new collaborations. Currently 17 states have not yet received a statewide implementation grant and are eligible to apply for these funds. The states are: Arizona, Hawaii, Idaho, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, Washington DC, West Virginia, Wisconsin, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, Puerto Rico, the Republic of Palau, and the Republic of the Marshall Islands.
