Current Actions To administer The Role of Libraries and Museums in Community Transformation (Community Catalyst)— A National Leadership Grants Special Initiative. National Leadership Grants for Libraries (NLG-Libraries) and National Leadership Grants for Museums (NLG-Museums), under which this special initiative falls, support projects that address challenges faced by the library and museum fields and that have the potential to advance practice in those fields. Successful projects will generate results such as new tools, research findings, models, services, practices, or alliances that can be widely used, adapted, scaled, or replicated to extend the benefits of federal investment. This special joint NLG-Libraries and NLG-Museums initiative invites proposals for development and testing of approaches to deepen and sustain the collaborative work that libraries and museums engage in with their communities. Funded projects will create a foundation for enhanced collective impact in communities, especially working with those from diverse economic, social, and cultural backgrounds and will involve key partners such as community service organizations, government entities, and/or funders. This funding opportunity may include grants and/or cooperative agreements. We will seek proposals that use approaches grounded in community innovation labs; such processes help to build understanding and develop options when complex social problems affect many stakeholders. They are effective where no one entity is accountable for solving the problem, no one solution is sufficient for solving the problem, and current solutions are insufficient. Labs draw on diverse perspectives about a problem to make sense of an issue and focus on rapid experimentation to surface and adapt solutions to problems. By bringing together stakeholders with a collective blend of knowledge and experience with various aspects of local place and social wellbeing, these individuals and organizations can co-create, and test solutions together in ways that they could not have done on their own. Participants will seek to help their local community collaborate across sectors, question old assumptions, develop deep understandings of local system dynamics, explore solutions that leverage existing community assets and yield innovative responses, and rehearse potential strategies for change that include drawing upon museums and libraries. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:27 Nov 07, 2016 Jkt 241001 This process will help to advance our understanding of what is currently occurring in a community and where there are different leverage points to effect change.
