TSLAC CARES – Cycle 2 Opening for Application August 28, 2020

On Friday, August 28th from 10-11:30 am CST, join TSLAC Grants Administrator and Erica McCormick, TSLAC Program Coordinator, to learn about the TSLAC CARES grant program for libraries in response to the COVID-19 emergency. Register for the webinar here.  

The TSLAC CARES Grant Program funds community needs identified by Texas libraries in areas of digital access and inclusion to include programs, training, and tools necessary to increase community access to vital digital technologies and services. Additionally, funds may be utilized for library initiatives that support prevention, preparation, and response to the COVID-19 emergency. 

This reimbursement grant program will fund operating expenditures such as library supplies and materials, technology, furniture, and contractual services. All grant expenses must be designed to respond directly to the COVID-19 emergency. 

The Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) will begin accepting grant applications on August 28, 2020. Public and academic libraries in Texas who have identified community needs arising from or highlighted by the COVID-19 emergency are encouraged to apply. Please visit the TSLAC CARES webpage for more information about this funding opportunity.

We encourage you to bring your questions to the webinar on Friday, May 8th. We look forward to seeing you there. Contact Erica McCormick, emmcormick@tsl.texas.gov with questions.
