Community collections grants will be awarded to support contemporary ethnographic field research focused on the cultures and traditions of diverse communities across the United States. This program is part of the new From the people: widening the path Library of Congress initiative to further connect the Library to Black, Indigenous and Colored communities traditionally under-represented in the Library’s collections.
Ten Community Collections Grants of up to $ 60,000 each will be awarded to individuals and organizations through two Funding Opportunity Notices which are now open for applications until September 7, 2021.
