Objectives: The Administration for Native Americans (ANA) offers two Native Language programs under this assistance listing to support Native Americans to ensure the survival and vitality of Native American languages (1) Native Language Preservation and Maintenance (P&M) and (2) Esther Martinez Immersion (EMI). The P&M Grants are 12, 24 or 36-month projects that enable communities to conduct a broad range of projects including teacher credentialing, language instruction, language resource developments, language assessments, and other projects that support the communities’ long-term language preservation goals. The EMI Grants are 36, 48, or 60-month projects that will be awarded to applicants that meet the statutory requirements for immersion projects with language nests or language survival schools in accordance with P.L. 109-394. ANA supports locally determined projects that achieve community goals through specific, measurable outcomes. In an effort to perpetuate language preservation efforts for Native communities, if appropriate, all ANA funded language 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.
