Funding available to support Community Based Organizations

Posted by on August 23rd, 2019 Posted in: @ the RML, Funding, Outreach

The National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Middle Atlantic Region (NNLM MAR) invites applications from Community Based Organizations to support health programming in public libraries. The purpose of the Health Programming in Public Libraries Award is to fund Community Based Organizations (CBOs) to incorporate MedlinePlus and information about the All of Us Research Program into existing health programming. Funded CBOs would then offer programs in public libraries within the Middle Atlantic Region (Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania).

  • Period of Performance: October 1, 2019 – April 30, 2020
  • Due Date: September 20, 2019 Noon ET
  • Notification of Awards: September 30, 2019

Amount: Up to $19,500

  • Community Based Organizations having a 501(c)(3) status with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), other than institutions of higher education and libraries, or
  • Cooperative Extension Service

Eligible organizations must have existing health programming that is offered to the public and be Network members in the Middle Atlantic Region (Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania). Membership is free, and open to any organization that provides or promotes health information. Awards are cost-reimbursable and are issued to the institution and not an individual.

Efforts will be made to fund programs throughout the region that have the potential to reach populations Underserved by Research.

NNLM MAR staff will work with funded programs to integrate relevant health information and NIH All of Us Research Program content into programs and to assist with making connections with local public libraries.
