Funding Tip 1 – Talk it through

Posted by on February 15th, 2018 Posted in: Funding

Introducing a new service from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Middle Atlantic Region – weekly funding tips will run from now until the middle of April. The first week of March, NNLM MAR will announce a new round of funding up to $19,000 for health information awareness and outreach projects in NY, NJ, PA and DE. Once we announce, you will have just a few weeks to submit an application.

Now is the time to think about how you could increase knowledge of National Library of Medicine and other reliable sources amongst your co-workers, students, community partners, professional organization, or clients/patients/patrons.

This week’s tip: Talk it through! Now is the time to talk to potential stakeholders, such as:

  • Community members who will participate in and benefit from your project
  • People who serve the community you are trying to reach, such as teachers, health care providers, or volunteers in health care organizations
  • Outreach project staff, who will want to be sure that investment of their time will be effective and worthwhile
  • Managers who oversee the staff who are directly involved with the project and want to use their human resources wisely
  • Leaders of partnering community-based organizations, who will want to make sure their participation or endorsement of your project reflects positively on the organization
