IMLS Gets Budget Increase for Various Programs

The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) received a funding increase for the rest of FY2018. The president signed a $1.3 trillion spending bill into law that funds the federal government until the end of September 2018, and $240 million of that budget is allocated to IMLS. At $9 million higher than the funding for FY2017, the law increases funds for programs such as Grants to States, Native American Library Services and Native Hawaiian Library Services, and Museum Grants for African American History and Culture.
