Guidelines, Applications and Final Reports
Grant applications are evaluated twice a year by a permanent committee of the Texas Library Association. Applications are accepted year round with the cut-off deadlines of January 15th and June 1st. Short extensions may be obtained by contacting the Foundation Office, phone or email preferred. Please browse our site to read about recent grant recipients.
The next round of applications are due in our office by January 15, 2014.
New ~ Library Automation Upgrade Program
In the spring of 2013, the board of directors created a new program to assist libraries in upgrading their automation systems. To expedite these transitions, the Foundation will now accept applications year-round. Requests may only be for an automation system and any necessary items to support it. Projects addressing other areas of the library’s needs will not be considered when included in this request.
All grant applicants are encouraged to contact our Director of Grants Management, Karin Gerstenhaber, to discuss your project and provide a preliminary grant review.
