- Additional Information on Eligibility
- To be eligible for an award under the Native American/Native Hawaiian Museum Services program, you must be:
an Indian tribe or
an organization that primarily serves and represents 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. 1601 et seq.)), which is recognized by the Secretary of the Interior as eligible for the 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.
For purposes of funding under this program, an "organization that primarily serves and represents Native Hawaiians" is any nonprofit organization that primarily serves and represents Native Hawaiians, as defined in 20 U.S.C. Section 7517. In order for a museum to be eligible, it must demonstrate that it is established as an organization that meets this statutory eligibility criteria.
We recognize the potential for valuable contributions to the overall goals of the Native American/Native Hawaiian Museum Services program by entities that do not meet the eligibility requirements above. Although such entities may not serve as the lead applicant organization, they are encouraged to participate in projects as partners. Such entities may, for example, assist the lead applicant with project activities. Federally operated libraries and museums may not apply for the Native American/Native Hawaiian Museum Services grants, but they may serve as nonessential partners to applicants if they do not receive IMLS grant funds as a result of the project. Please note that federally appropriated funds, whether they are disbursed directly to you by an agency of the federal government or indirectly through another organization, do not count toward your cost share, if any. Contact us before submitting an application involving a federal agency or federal collection.
Note to applicants: In order to receive an IMLS award, you must be in compliance with applicable requirements and be in good standing on all active IMLS awards.
