Library Grantsmanship Academy
The Library Grantsmanship Academy is a program to educate and prepare local library staff to research, write, and manage grants to support local library programming. This project-based training program will enable library staff more time, guidance, and individualized attention to support the grant writing and grant management processes. Each selected library will build on what they’ve learned through the training by writing and submitting an eligible grant proposal to TSLAC requesting up to $25,000 to implement the proposed program.
