The National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Middle Atlantic Region, a health information outreach program funded by the National Library of Medicine, has funding for two grants of $19,000. Libraries, community-based organizations, schools, health care providers, and other organizations that provide health programming or services within PA, NY, NJ or DE are eligible to apply. Applications are due October 5, 2018, and award funds must be spent by April 30, 2019.

Applications for funding less than $15,000 will not be considered at this time.

Projects can fall under one of these categories:

  • Clinical and Public Health Outreach Award: Projects that enhance clinicians’ and public health workers’ abilities to find and use biomedical and health information in practice and for patient education.
  • Outreach to Consumers Award: Projects that improve health information literacy and increase the ability for patients, family members, students and members of the general public to find and use health information.
  • Health Sciences Library Project Award: Projects that support health sciences librarians as conduits of information management, access, and delivery within their institution and/or outreach community.
  • Health Literacy Project Award: Projects that promote a culture of health literacy within the organization.

Potential applicants are encouraged to review the above RFPs and watch a one hour recorded webinar on writing applications for NNLM MAR funding. Additional questions may be sent to nnlmmar@pitt.edu.

Stay tuned: Another round of funding opportunities will be announced soon to encourage proposals from public libraries or involving public library partnerships!
