Gates Foundation Grants

Grants to Massachusetts Public Libraries

The U.S. Library Program of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation works in partnership with public libraries to provide access to computers, the Internet and digital information for patrons in low-income communities in the United States. Technology training, ongoing technical assistance, and additional support for grantees are provided as part of the grant because of the pivotal role librarians play in helping patrons use computers and navigate the Internet.
