IMLS announced $15 Million in CARES Act Grants<https://www.imls.gov/news/15-million-imls-cares-act-grants-now-available-museum-and-library-services> now available for museum and library services through two new funding opportunities.

The deadline for submitting applications to either funding opportunity is June 12, 2020, with award announcements anticipated in August.

IMLS CARES Act Grants for Museums and Libraries<https://www.imls.gov/grants/available/imls-cares-act-grants-museums-and-libraries> support museums and libraries in addressing their communities' immediate and future needs caused by the pandemic. Projects may focus on preserving jobs, training staff, addressing the digital divide, planning for reopening, or providing technical support and capacity building for digital inclusion and engagement. Applicants are encouraged to prioritize services for high-need communities.

IMLS CARES Act Grants for Native American/Native Hawaiian Museum and Library Services<https://www.imls.gov/grants/available/imls-cares-act-grants-native-americannative-hawaiian-museum-and-library-services> assist tribes and organizations that primarily serve and represent Native Hawaiians in responding to the urgent and future needs of their communities. Applications focused on digital inclusion, technical support, rehiring or retraining staff, reopening planning, and other pandemic-related priorities are welcomed.

This funding is in addition to the $30 million that was distributed to state library agencies through the Grants to States program. The State Library received $381,108 through this allocation. We are developing plans for this funding and will be sharing information in the coming weeks.
