IMLS Grant Opportunities
This link is to the Institute of Museum and Library Services website and, in particular, a description of the grant opportunities I think might be particularly appropriate for us.
These are the briefest of the description versions. You can download the pdf (bottom of the page) for much fuller accounts. I looked at what was funded last year. The projects were not especially innovative or imaginitive -- not in ways the opportunities would seem to invite.
I'd welcome thoughts about this. The earliest deadline is not until Feb.1, but a successful application would probably require a prototype of what we wanted funded -- something that demonstrated value and capacity.
