Bloomberg Philanthropies announced the launch of the 2018 Public Art Challenge. Through the challenge, Mayors of U.S. cities with thirty thousand residents or more are invited to apply for funding to support temporary public art projects that address important civic issues. Submissions of dynamic works of art across all disciplines will be considered. Proposed projects will be evaluated on their ability to generate public-private collaborations, celebrate creativity and urban identity, and strengthen local economies.

Grant Amount: Grants of $1 million dollars are available. At least three winners will be chosen in 2018 to execute their projects over a maximum of twenty-four months. Grants will cover project-related expenditures such as development, execution, and marketing, but will not fund 100 percent of project costs.

Eligibility: To be eligible, lead applicant must be submitted by the Mayor or chief executive of the host city on behalf of a collaboration between the city and an artist and/or arts organization. U.S. cities are required to have 30,000 residents or more to apply.

Due Date: April 25, 2018

The National Endowment for the Humanities is now accepting applications for Preservation Assistance Grants. Preservation Assistance Grants help small and mid-sized institutions—such as libraries, museums, historical societies, archival repositories, cultural organizations, town and county records offices, and colleges and universities—improve their ability to preserve and care for their significant humanities collections. These may include special collections of books and journals, archives and manuscripts, prints and photographs, moving images, sound recordings, architectural and cartographic records, decorative and fine art objects, textiles, archaeological and ethnographic artifacts, furniture, historical objects, and digital materials.

Applicants must draw on the knowledge of consultants whose preservation skills and experience are related to the types of collections and the nature of the activities on which their projects focus. Within the conservation field, for example, conservators usually specialize in the care of specific types of collections, such as objects, paper, or paintings. Applicants should, therefore, choose a conservator whose specialty is appropriate for the nature of their collections. Similarly, when assessing the preservation needs of library, museum, or archival holdings, applicants should seek a consultant specifically knowledgeable about the preservation of collections in these types of institutions.

Grant Amount: Grants amounts of up to $10,000 are available.

Eligibility: Eligible applicants include:

•Private institutions of higher education

•Public and State controlled institutions of higher education

•Special district governments

•Native American tribal governments (Federally recognized)

•Nonprofits having a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS, other than institutions of higher education 

•City, County, and State governments

Due Date: May 1, 2018

The Institute of Museum and Library Services announces funding to support projects that address significant challenges and opportunities facing the library, archive, and museum (LAM) fields and have the potential to advance theory and practice. Activating Community Opportunities Using Museums/Libraries as Assets is a special initiative with the goal of examining how LAMs can work with their communities to leverage their unique abilities to affect positive community change.

Successful projects will demonstrate how LAMs can provide trusted spaces for, and learn from, ongoing community dialog to facilitate the discovery of mutual understanding and shared goals among individuals. In addition, successful projects will demonstrate the viability of using and adapting existing approaches gleaned from the collective impact, social well-being, and community development arenas. A range of approaches is currently being employed in these fields that could be helpful as potential applicants consider their proposed projects. Overall, applicants should present inclusive, collaborative, and resourceful projects that will pursue collective solutions to a community challenge and that can enhance the quality of LAM services nationwide.

Grant Amount: Grants amounts range from $25,000 to $150,000.

Eligibility: Eligible applicants include Library Entities, Museum Entities, Community Entities, or Institutions of Higher Education. Some institutions may be eligible under more than one category of eligibility
