Announcing New Funding Opportunities – Deadlines Extended!

Posted by on December 4th, 2014 Posted in: Funding, News From NNLM PNR

Hear Ye!The NN/LM PNR invites proposals for a new suite of funding opportunities for projects carried out  between May 1, 2015 and April 30, 2016.   If you are a Network member in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington, we want to support your good ideas and encourage you to submit a proposal!

Proposals will be accepted until February 3 February 17, 2015.   Also, if you plan to submit an application, we need a brief statement of intent no later than January 13 January 27, 2015 to help our planning process. Please submit your statement of intent to apply to nnlm@uw.edu.



Consider proposing plans to learn, utilize, and deploy new software or hardware via the Technology Improvement Award.

If you want support to educate, advocate, and promote the value of health information services you offer, propose your plan via the Health Information Services Award.

For projects that promote health equity, such as training on resources or data about the social determinants of health in your community, consider the Health Disparities Information Outreach Award.

Or, you may want to provide training on evidence-based public health or culturally competent health literacy resources for public health professionals, K-12 school health personnel, or community based organizations. If so, considering applying for the Express Outreach Award.

Have you launched a new service or type of health information delivery? Consider ways to evaluate and share what you are learning via support from the Medical Library Pilot Project Award.

Lastly, if you have other ideas and you are not sure there is a ‘fit’ with these currently available awards, please drop us a line (nnlm@uw.edu) by January 21 and briefly describe your idea so we can discuss the possibilities with you.
