FY2015 Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) Grant Round

The MBLC is pleased to announce the FY2015 Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant round. We offer a variety of grant programs, but if a grant idea isn't covered in the following program offerings, there is an Innovative / Open grant that lets you tell us about your program idea.

For the 2015 grant round, the MBLC is very interested in receiving Innovative applications for staff development, adult literacy, and civic engagement projects that could serve as models for libraries statewide. A complete list of grant programs offered with staff contact information and links to their fact sheets can be found on this page.
