Museums are not eligible to apply for this grant program.

Eligible applicants are: . Indian tribes or . Organizations that primarily serve and represent 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. Section 1601 et seq.)) which is recognized by the Secretary of the Interior as eligible for 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, except for the recognized Alaska native villages, regional corporations, and village corporations (Alaskan entities should refer to applicable provisions in the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, referenced above). If a tribe has several bands, colonies, Rancherias, communities or other organizational entities listed in parentheses following a tribe name on the Department of Interiors list of federally recognized tribes, only one of those entities may receive a grant in a fiscal year. For example, if a tribe has four bands, only one of the bands may apply for a grant in a fiscal year. It is the responsibility of the tribal chief executive to determine which entity will apply for the grant. IMLS will notify the affected tribes of any change in this policy. For the purposes of funding under this program, "organizations that primarily serve and represent Native Hawaiians" means any nonprofit organization that primarily serves and represents Native Hawaiians, as the term is defined in 20 U.S.C. Section 7517, is also eligible for funding.
