Application period open for the 2021-2026 cycle of the Network of the National Library Medicine (NNLM)

Posted in: #CC/Academic List, #Health Interest List, #Health Sciences List, #Public/K-12 List, All Members, All of Us


The National Library of Medicine has announced that the Regional Medical Libraries (RML) and supporting offices cooperative agreement funding opportunities for 2021-2026 are open for applications until September 11. You can read the announcement of the FOA here and review the FOA here.

There are a couple of significant changes in this new funding announcement. First is a name change to Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM).

There will be notable changes to the geographic make-up of the regions. Our region, Region 4, will be losing 3 states: Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri will be part of the new Region 3.

Colorado, Wyoming and Utah will be joined in Region 4 by six new states: Arizona, New Mexico, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota.

The mission of the NNLM is to advance the progress of medicine and improve the public’s health by providing U.S. researchers, health professionals, public health workforce, educators, and the public with equal access to biomedical and health information resources and data. The RMLs carry out regional and national programs in support of the mission. The FOA also solicits proposals for RMLs to host one or more of the NNLM Offices, which are functional units that serve the entire NNLM program.

A technical assistance webinar open to all interested parties will be held on Wednesday July 8, 2020 from 3:00-4:00pm ET. For more information, see https://nnlm.gov/workbook#tech.
