Hi everyone,

The State Library of Oregon is now offering American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) grants that can fund a variety of projects related to connectivity, digital equity and inclusion, EDI and antiracism, workforce development, and needs arising from the pandemic. The full grant guide is available at https://libguides.osl.state.or.us/lstagrants/arpa. Here you will find information on eligibility, timeline, how to apply, etc. Eligible entities include libraries of all types, museums, tribes, and organizations that serve or partner with any of those entities.

There are two types of grants: small grants ($1,000 - $20,000) and large grants ($20,000 - $150,000). Each eligible entity<https://libguides.osl.state.or.us/c.php?g=852179&p=8390617#s-lg-box-wrapper-31302871> may submit only ONE APPLICATION. However, you may include multiple projects on the same application, up to the maximum dollar amount.

You can preview the grant application here: https://www.grantinterface.com/Process/Apply?urlkey=slor. Applications will open Tuesday, June 1.

We are holding two information sessions, for you to come and ask questions. They will be recorded and posted on the ARPA grants guide if you are not able to attend.
