The State Library has allocated $70,000 for small grants to fund school library collection development with a focus on equity, diversity, and/or inclusion. The maximum award ranges from $10,000 to $250 based on student enrollment.
Oregon school districts, non-profit private schools, and public charter schools are eligible to apply. Except for private and charter schools, applications must be at the district level. Each district may decide how many and which schools to include, based on priorities, needs, etc.
The application period will open on Monday, April 12 and close Wednesday, April 21. Grant recipients will be notified by April 30, and a check will be issued within 30 days (hopefully sooner, but recipients can prepare orders while waiting on the check, if needed). In other words, recipients will receive funds up front instead of through a reimbursement model. All funds must be expended and invoices/receipts submitted to the State Library by August 31, 2021.
