New funding available NOW! COVID-19 Health Information Outreach Award

Posted by on August 3rd, 2020

COVID-19 health information outreach award, apply today! applications due September 1, 2020

We at NNLM SCR strive to facilitate and provide opportunities to enrich your communities and improve the health outcomes of the people who live there. We offer a number of recurring awards each year to organizations who wish to organize projects or programs to do just that. This year, we are thrilled to announce an all-new award, the COVID-19 Health Information Outreach Award!

There exists an urgent need in communities throughout the South Central Region for patrons, consumers, educators, and trainers to have access to high-quality electronic information resources. We are living in a very different world from this time last year, and new challenges bring new opportunities. These awards, amounting to $20,000 each, will allow libraries to pilot and/or develop programming to help communities manage physical and mental health care decisions in the wake of the COVID-19 global pandemic. This also includes tools and training to manage information overload or combat misinformation.

Five (5) COVID-19 Health Information Outreach Awards are available, and applications are due September 1, 2020. Please visit the link below for more complete information on the award and how you can apply today!

As always, we look forward to reading your proposals and learning more about the plans, ideas, and vision you have to strengthen your communities! Thank you all for the hard work you continue to do. It’s an honor to serve the NNLM South Central Region.
