Grant Programs

Competitive Grants

This is a project-based grant program. Grant funds are to be used for projects that support at least one of the State Library’s Five-Year Plan priorities. Organizations are encouraged to envision projects that will meet an identified need or opportunity in the library’s community.

Applications open in the fall, and awards are issued in early spring. Projects run for one year (July 1 - June 30).

A list of previously funded projects is available on the Grant Awards page.
