      Technical Assistance Conference Calls October 3 and 10 to Help
      Applicants Prepare Museums for America Proposals

      Museums for America Grant Program Guidelines Available on IMLS Web site
      (Grant Application Deadline: November 1, 2007)

      To help museums throughout the country learn more about how the Museums
      for America (MFA) program can help advance their institution's mission
      and strategic goals, the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS)
      has scheduled two technical assistance conference calls. Application
      guidelines are available on the IMLS website at
      http://www.imls.gov/applicants/grants/pdf/MFA_2008.pdf. The application
      deadline is November 1, 2007.

      MFA grants strengthen a museum's ability to serve the public more
      effectively by supporting high-priority activities that advance the
      museum's mission and strategic goals. It is the largest funding program
      for museums at IMLS, providing more than $17 million in grants. IMLS
      seeks to distribute MFA grants across all types and sizes of museums, in
      all parts of the country.

      IMLS has scheduled two audio-conference calls to give prospective
      applicants an opportunity to ask the IMLS staff questions pertaining to
      the MFA grant program. There are many changes in the FY 2008 MFA
      guidelines so we welcome the opportunity to discuss these changes with
      both prospective applicants and former grant recipients.

      We have used this audio-conference format for other IMLS grant programs
      with great success and anticipate this will be equally beneficial.
      Participants will need the information below to participate:
