The questions below are exactly the questions you will be asked in the GMS. Pay specific attention to the rubric on pages 9-10 of the Notice of Funding Opportunity to see how they will be scored.
Needs Assessment: Describe identified community needs arising from or highlighed by the COVID-19 emergency.
Program Purpose: Describe how your program or service can meet identified community need arising from or highlighted by the COVID-19 emergency.
Budget: Please indicate what items the library will purchase, as well as a cost per unit, where indicated. If exact quantity and/or cost information is unavailable, please provide an estimate.
Sustainability: Describe the resources that will be used to support the program or service developed through the grant in the future.
Write your responses to the grant application questions in a word processing program (Microsoft Word, etc) then copy-paste them into the fields in the GMS.
Build time into your schedule to collect the appropriate signature on the Grant Application Certification Form.
