Libraries, community-based organizations and others in the MidContinental Region have an opportunity to apply for two new NNLM funding awards designed to address specific needs.
The awards funded through the NNLM All of Us Community Engagement Network will cover planning projects to address health literacy needs in communities and support library programming in the Denver area.
The Health Literacy Planning Subaward for up to $4,500 will help libraries and community partners work together to develop plans for improving health literacy and access to health information.
The Denver Area All of Us Local Ambassador Program Support Award for up to $2,500 will fund programming by a library, health organization or community based organization. The programming should include a component to support the All of Us Local Ambassador Program in Greater Denver. This can include an opportunity for an All of Us ambassador to speak to program participants or distribution of information about the All of Us program.
The awards are available to applicants in the MidContinental Region of NNLM, which consists of Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri. Projects should start no earlier than Nov. 2, 2020, and be completely finished by April 15, 2021. Applications are due by Sept. 18.
