Each eligible entity may only submit one application per grant cycle.
The application is completed through our online grants portal. If you are new to the system, you will need to create an account; you may also want to view the applicant tutorial. You may save your work, log out, and come back to your application at any time before submitting.
If you would like to receive feedback from State Library staff on a draft of your application, you must submit a draft by the deadline listed in the timeline above.
To submit a draft, enter text into all required fields of the application and click Submit. Once State Library staff have finished reviewing your application, it will be reverted back to "Draft" status within the system. You will be able to view comments and make any desired changes before the final application deadline.
Final applications must be submitted by the deadline listed in the timeline above. Applications that are left incomplete in the system or not submitted by the deadline will be considered abandoned requests and will not be considered for funding.
