A list of eligible entities is available from the Bureau of Indian Affairs, except for the recognized Alaska native villages, regional corporations, and village corporations (Alaskan entities should refer to applicable provisions in the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, referenced above).

IMLS recognizes the potential for valuable contributions to the overall goals of the Native American/Native Hawaiian Museum Services program by entities that do not meet the eligibility requirements above. Although such entities may not serve as the official applicants, they are encouraged to participate in projects as partners. Federally operated libraries and museums may not apply for the Native American/Native Hawaiian Museum Services grants, but they may serve as nonessential partners to applicants if they do not receive IMLS grant funds as a result of the project.
