Grant Information & Forms

SCKLS invites public, school, academic and special libraries to submit applications for the 2020 New Program/Project Grant. This grant is reserved for new or special library programs that allow a library to diversify offerings or explore unique opportunities. Funded activities should occur between January 1 and December 31, 2020. The deadline for submission is prior to the event and no later than November 15, 2020. Grant Evaluation materials must be submitted no later than December 15, 2020. Failure to submit Grant Evaluation materials will subject the library to the Ineligibility Phase. Grants will be awarded in amounts up to $500.

Grant funds are not to be used to provide annual funding for library ongoing events or programs. Grant funds are not to be used for library programs that have been offered in the past. This grant is reserved for new or special library programs. Applicants are asked to specify on their applications what part of the planned project is new or special to the library. Projects that require one to three years to complete may be given consideration for multiple-year funding contingent on the library submitting a grant application and evaluation for each year of the project and initially identifying the project as multi-year.
