Grant Description

Grant of $3,000 to a USA library for outreach efforts addressing underserved populations in the community. Funding is intended for projects that engage underserved children, from birth to age 14. Applications will be considered for new and innovative programs, or for the expansion of work already being implemented.

Special population children may include (but are not limited to) those who have learning or physical differences, those who are speaking English as a second language, those who are in a non-traditional school environment, those who are in non-traditional family settings (such as teen parents, foster children, children in the juvenile justice system, and children in gay and lesbian families), and those who need accommodation service to meet their needs.

The grant recognizes that underserved populations vary from community to community, and all programs that seek to specifically address concerns in this area are eligible for consideration.
