Grants to USA, Guam, American Samoa, and Northern Mariana Islands IHEs, tribal and native agencies, associations, and community and faith-based organizations for Native American language immersion programs and schools. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete.

The purpose of the Native American Language Preservation and Maintenance - EMI program is to provide financial assistance to community-driven projects designed to preserve Native American languages through Native American language nests and Native American language survival schools. ANA is interested in supporting locally determined projects designed to enhance or improve community conditions and achieve long-range community goals.

The EMI program focuses support for projects that are based in teaching and building capacity for language immersion instruction. Funded EMI projects reflect measurable outcomes and include specific strategies for achieving intended objectives. In an effort to perpetuate language preservation efforts for Native communities, if appropriate, EMI projects should identify opportunities for the replication or modification of such project for use by other Native Americans; and include a plan for the preservation of the products of the Native American language project for the benefit of future generations of Native Americans and other interested persons.

Programs funded under this opportunity must meet one of the following requirements as specified in the Esther Martinez Native American Languages Preservation Act (42 U.S.C.2991b-3(b)(7):

  • Native American Language Nests are site-based educational programs that provide child care and instruction in a Native American language for at least 5 children under the age of 7 for an average of at least 500 hours per year per child, provide classes in such languages for parents or legal guardians of children enrolled in such language nests, and must ensure that a Native American language is the medium of instruction in the Native American language nest.
  • Native American Language Survival Schools are site-based educational programs for school-age students that provide at least 500 hours per year per child of Native American language instruction to at least 10 students for whom a Native American language survival school is their principal place of instruction, and which develop instructional courses and materials, provide teacher training, and work toward achieving Native American language fluency and academic proficiency in mathematics, reading, and sciences, and are located in areas that have high numbers or percentages of Native American students.
