Presidential Budget Request for FY2019 Still Gives IMLS Short Shrift

Kathryn K. Matthew, director of the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), released a statement on the president’s proposed FY2019 budget. He released a budget request to Congress on Feb. 12 that calls for the “orderly closure” of IMLS. “This is the first step for the FY 2019 federal budget, and we will provide information to the Office of Management and Budget and Congress throughout the process as requested,” says Matthew. “We are disappointed that for a second year, the President’s budget request did not provide funding for the continuation of IMLS activities for the next fiscal year. In the meantime, the agency will continue normal grantmaking operations with allocated FY 2018 funds.”
