Call for Applications for IMLS Grants

By Donna DiMichele | December 14, 2017

The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) is accepting applications for the second cycle of the FY 2018 National Leadership Grants for Libraries (NLG-L) and Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program (LB21). This is the final opportunity to apply for the FY 2018 NLG-L and LB21 grant programs.

The NLG-L program invests in projects that address challenges faced by the library and archive fields and generate results such as new tools, research findings, or models that can be widely used. The LB21 program supports professional development and training projects for libraries and archives.

Applicants have through February 1, 2018, to submit their two-page preliminary proposals.

From the preliminary proposals received by the February 1 deadline, IMLS will select applicants and invite them to submit full proposals by June 8, 2018.

See the grant program pages for more information about the types of activities that can be funded through NLG-L or LB21.


Informational webinar recordings will be made available on the IMLS website. For information about how to access the webinar recordings, see the IMLS webinar webpage, which includes information about system compatibility.

IMLS staff members listed on the NLG-L and LB21 webpages are available by phone and email to answer general questions related to the programs.
