In December 1981, pursuant to title Il of the act of Dec. 23, 1981 (20 U.S.C. 961, 962), the Institute was established as an independent agency within the National Foundation on the Arts and the Humanities. The Institute's Director is appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate and is authorized to make grants to museums
subject to policy directives and priorities set by the National Museum Services Board. The Board is comprised of 15 Presidentially appointed members and 5 ex officio members.
The Institute awards grants on a competitive basis to support the efforts of museums to conserve the Nation's historic, scientific, and cultural heritage; to maintain and expand their educational role; and to ease the financial burden borne by museums as a grants in

The Institute awards grants to all types of museums, including but not limited to art, history, general, children's, natural history, science and technology, as well as historic houses, zoos and aquariums, botanical gardens and arboretums, nature centers, and planetariums.
The Institute currently makes seven categories: general operating support, conservation project support, museum assessment, conservation assessment, professional services, technical assistance, and museum leadership initiatives.
General operating support grants are 2-year competitive awards that maintain or improve the operations of museums.
Conservation project support grants are annual competitive awards, for projects lasting up to 2 years, that provide funds for various conservation efforts.

Conservation assessment program grants are one-time awards made to
museums to assess the condition of their environment and collections in order to identify conservation needs and priorities.
Professional services program grants provide funding to national, regional, State, or local private, nonprofit professional museum organizations and associations for proposals designed to strengthen museum services.
Technical assistance grants provide funds to small, emerging minority and rural museums for training and other implementation activities.
