I posted about this opportunity on the OASL and OSLIST listservs. To cover the bases, I'd appreciate it if you'd share the information below with Oregon school library staff you may partner or work with.

Great news! The State Library has allocated $70,000 for mini-grants to fund school library collection development with a focus on equity, diversity, and/or inclusion. The maximum award ranges from $10,000 to $250 based on student enrollment. Oregon school districts and non-profit private schools are eligible to apply. Except for private schools, applications must be at the district level. Each district may decide how many and which schools to include, based on priorities, needs, etc. The application period will open on Monday, April 12 and close Wednesday, April 21. Grant recipients will be notified by April 30, and a check will be issued within 30 days (hopefully sooner, but recipients can prepare orders while waiting on the check, if needed). In other words, recipients will receive funds up front instead of through a reimbursement model. All funds must be expended and invoices/receipts submitted to the State Library by August 31, 2021.

A colleague is creating a LibGuide with all of the details and the application link, and I'll post when that is ready. So you can start planning, here's an overview (eligibility, purchasing criteria, maximum allowable grant request, timeline, requirements, etc.)<https://docs.google.com/document/d/1TfReea6rRwdYQeyIk_n9OsAvhiT5Rayw47jWN-h_eZw/edit?usp=sharing> and a preview of the rubric that will be used to score applications<https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Y-QPZN9Wsp9r9AF8W_bNj-nyXcvbZ2VN-zm9eeYQY4k/edit?usp=sharing>. As a heads up, applicants will need their district or private school's employer identification number (EIN) when creating a profile in the grant application software. Administrators or the head secretary should have that information.

Questions? Please ask.
