Greetings and please pardon the duplicate post(s)

I wanted to pass along information on these two grant opportunities: the Institute of Museum and Library Services is now accepting FY 2022 proposals for National Leadership Grants for Libraries<https://www.imls.gov/grants/available/national-leadership-grants-libraries> (NLG-L) and the Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian program<https://www.imls.gov/grants/available/laura-bush-21st-century-librarian-program> (LB21).

Please see the Notice of Funding Opportunity for the NLG-L<https://www.imls.gov/sites/default/files/2021-07/fy22-ols-nlgl-nofo.pdf> and LB21<https://www.imls.gov/sites/default/files/2021-07/fy22-ols-lb21-nofo.pdf> grants for eligibility requirements.

Applicants have through September 24, 2021, to submit their two-page preliminary proposals.

The National Leadership Grants for Libraries program supports projects that address critical needs of the library and archives fields and have the potential to advance practice in these professions to strengthen library and archival services for the American public. Successful proposals will generate results such as new models, new tools, research findings, services, practices, or alliances that will be widely used, adapted, scaled, or replicated to extend and leverage the benefits of federal investment.

The Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian program supports the development of a diverse workforce of librarians and archivists to better meet the information needs of communities being served. Program goals include recruiting, training, developing, and retaining a diverse workforce of library and archives professionals; developing faculty, library, and archives leaders by increasing the institutional capacity of libraries, archives, and of graduate programs related to library and information science; and enhancing the training and professional development of the library and archival workforce to meet the needs of their communities.

Applicants should review the notices of funding opportunity carefully and reach out to IMLS staff members listed on the NLG-L<https://www.imls.gov/grants/available/national-leadership-grants-libraries> and LB21 <https://www.imls.gov/grants/available/national-leadership-grants-libraries> webpages with any questions. A free on-demand informational webinar will be made available in the coming weeks on the IMLS website<https://www.imls.gov/webinars>.
