Express Outreach Award Proposals Now Being Accepted!

Posted by on August 5th, 2016 Posted in: Funding, Outreach

We are pleased to announce the availability of the Call for Applications (CFA) for our popular Express Outreach Award funding program for 2016-2017! We intend to fund up to five (5) awards, at a maximum amount of $14,000 each. The complete details, including application instructions, are now available on the NN/LM PSR web site. Proposal submissions must be received by Friday, August 26, to receive consideration. All NN/LM PSR Network members are eligible to apply.

The awards are designed to increase awareness of health information resources by health professionals, consumers, public health professionals, Regional Extension Centers, and minority health practitioners; to create culturally and linguistically appropriate resources; and to better integrate the role of libraries in clinical and translational science. Awards may include travel expenses for Network members to represent the NN/LM PSR at regional, state, or local meetings. Project funds will be distributed on a cost-reimbursement basis.

Ideally, all project funds should be expended by the end of the RML budget year, April 30, 2017. There may be funding available for projects needing an extension into the next budget year, with prior approval, but there is no guarantee. Indirect costs are an allowable budget item. Food, promotional items and furniture are not allowable expenses. Award recipients will be required to submit outreach activity reports, exhibit reports (if applicable), and final project reports. Awardees are also required to share any data or training material resulting from funding. In addition, upon completion of projects, all award recipients are expected to submit an article for the NN/LM PSR Latitudes newsletter blog with project highlights.

RML staff members are available to answer questions about the award program, or to discuss potential project ideas. We look forward to seeing your proposals!
