The National Network of Libraries of Medicine Pacific Northwest Region (NNLM PNR), under cooperative agreement with the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), is pleased to announce the following funding opportunities:

Each of these funding opportunities is designed to support the National Library of Medicine’s mission to advance the progress of medicine and improve the public health by:

  • providing all U.S. health professionals with equal access to biomedical information.
  • improving the public’s access to information to enable them to make informed decisions about their health.

NNLM PNR’s Community Health Award is intended to improve the access and use of quality online health information to support informed decisions about health in underserved communities. A minimum of five awards of up to $12,000 each will be funded.

NNLM PNR’s Professional Development Award supports the continuing education of individuals at NNLM PNR member institutions in order to increase their knowledge, skills and competencies for enhancing health information services to healthcare providers and/or consumers. In person or virtual meetings or conferences are examples of the types of professional development opportunities eligible for these awards. Ten (10) or more awards of up to $1,750 each will be funded. Awards will be available on an ongoing basis until funds are expended.

NNLM PNR’s Technology Improvement Award supports infrastructure that improves equitable access to medical and health information for different user groups, for example health professionals, researchers, library staff or the general public. Six Technology Improvement Awards of up to $5,000 will be made.

Our NNLM Proposal Writing Toolkit contains helpful information and short explanatory videos to guide you through the funding opportunity application process. And as always, your PNR staff stands ready to help answer your questions. Please reach out to us at: nnlm@uw.edu or contact a PNR staff member directly.

Ready to apply? Look for the Community Health Awards, Professional Development Awards and the Technology Improvement Award online application portals to open on or before June 8, 2020.

We look forward to your good ideas!
