National Leadership Grants for Museums

This program is designed to support projects that address critical needs of the museum field and that have the potential to advance practice in the profession to strengthen museum services for the American public. Projects are expected to: generate results such as models, new tools, research findings, services, practices, and/or alliances that can be widely used, adapted, scaled, or replicated to extend the benefits of federal investment; reflect a thorough understanding of current practice and knowledge about the subject matter and an awareness of and support for current strategic priorities in the field; use collaboration to demonstrate broad need, field-wide buy-in and input, and access to appropriate expertise; articulate intentional impact across one or more disciplines within the museum field; and employ novel approaches to the project area, as may be appropriate.
