Hello library directors in Oregon,

Please help us get the word out about two relief funding opportunities announced this week (one Oregon-based, the other federal):

*       The Oregon Community Foundation has announced their Oregon Arts and Culture Recovery Program<https://oregoncf.org/grants-and-scholarships/grants/oregon-arts-and-culture-recovery-program/>, available to institutions whose mission is focused on arts/culture. This may not make your library directly eligible, but please help get the word out to arts and culture partners in your communities.

*       The National Endowment for the Humanities has announced COVID-19 pandemic relief funding (NEH CARES: Cultural Institutions<https://www.neh.gov/news/neh-offers-emergency-relief-funding-cultural-institutions-affected-coronavirus>), available to cultural institutions through the CARES Act. This funding is meant to "support a range of humanities activities across the fields of education, preservation and access, public programming, digital humanities, and scholarly research."

Also, please watch this space for more information coming soon about the approximately $380,000 in CARES Act funding coming to Oregon libraries via the IMLS<https://www.imls.gov/news/imls-announces-new-stimulus-funding-communities-across-america>. We expect to share more details and to announce opportunities to provide your input about this funding over the next few weeks.

Be well!
