LSTA grants are one of the many ways the State Library supports library services across Oregon through its federally funded Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) Program, administered on the national level by the Institute of Museum and Library Services' Grants to States Program.
LSTA funds are intended to be used for projects that support library services in Oregon, and address at least one of the goals of Oregon's LSTA Five-Year Plan. See our grant programs for specific information.
