Grant proposals for Institute for Museum and Library Services are due next week (March 1). This year, IMLS will be giving grants for collaborative planning projects. I know of two groups that are submitting proposals for that grant and there are likely many more. Proposals for the National Leadership Grants are also due.
Here's my plea...if you have been asked to submit a letter of support for a grant applicaton, please do it. Those letters of support are meaningful for the projects (who need to know that others believe in what they are doing) and for IMLS who wants to know these projects aren't "going it alone."
