Using Institute of Museum and Library Services Grants to Support Out-of-School Time Programs. Funding Note
Griffin, Shawn Stelow
Finance Project
Out-of-school time programs give many youth the chance to engage in interesting and enriching opportunities in the arts. One source of funding for art and cultural activities in out-of-school time programs is The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). This federal agency is charged with creating strong libraries and museums that connect people to information and ideas. To support its mission, IMLS offers a host of funding opportunities that can help out-of-school time programs offer an array of arts and cultural programming drawing on the resources of museums and libraries. Grantmaking activities to local and state libraries, as well as museums of all types, support programs implemented by individual organizations both alone and in partnership with community organizations, schools, and out-of-school time programs. This funding note describes current opportunities that can be used to support out-of-school time programs and offers strategies and considerations for accessing IMLS funds. (Contains 7 footnotes and lists 15 resources.)
