Funding Available: Health Programming in Public Libraries

Posted by on July 1st, 2020 Posted in: All of Us, Consumer Health, Funding, Outreach


The Network of the National Library of Medicine, Middle Atlantic Region (NNLM MAR) invites applications to support health programming for public library patrons in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware.

The purpose of the Health Programming in Public Libraries Award is to fund health programs for public library patrons that incorporate MedlinePlus and information about the All of Us Research Program.

Projects are encouraged which include:

  • Virtual programming that can be promoted to public library patrons
  • A focus on underserved health communities and underrepresented populations

Projects must include a public library, state library, or library association as a partner or applicant.

Virtual programming is central to this award. Possible allowable related costs include: social media campaigns, digital library collections (ebooks/eaudio), speaker fees, closed captioning and American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation, and digital platform subscriptions.

Efforts will be made to fund programs throughout the region and that have the potential to reach populations underepresented by biomedical research. BIPOC-led organizations are especially encouraged to apply.

NNLM MAR staff will work with funded programs to integrate relevant health information and All of Us content into programs.

Up to $20,000 of funding per award is available for 3 or more projects within the region.

  • Period of Performance: September 1, 2020 – April 30, 2021
  • Due Date: July 31, 2020 Noon ET
  • Notification of Awards: August 31, 2020

Full Request for Proposals

The mission of the Network of the National Library of Medicine is to advance the progress of medicine, improve public health by providing U.S. health professionals with equal access to biomedical information, and improve individuals’ access to information to enable them to make informed decisions about their health. Under a Cooperative Agreement with the National Library of Medicine (NLM), the University of Pittsburgh Health Sciences Library System serves as the Regional Medical Library for NNLM MAR.
