The American Library Association (ALA) invites applications from small and rural libraries for the Libraries Transforming Communities (LTC): Accessible Small and Rural Communities grant. More than $7 million in grants will be available to small and rural libraries to increase the accessibility of facilities, services, and programs to better serve people with disabilities.

Those interested in applying are encouraged to register for a free pre-application webinar on November 8, 2022.

Selected libraries will receive $10,000 or $20,000 to support costs related to their community engagement project; virtual training to assist project directors in developing their community engagement, facilitation, and disability service skills; a suite of online resources developed to support local programs; and technical and project support from the ALA Public Programs Office throughout the grant term.

Library workers may apply online for grant funding from November 1, 2022, to February 28, 2023, at ala.org/LTCAccess. To be eligible, a library must have a legal service area population of 25,000 or less and be located at least five miles from an urbanized area.

Up to 300 libraries will be awarded in this application period, part of ALA’s longtime community engagement initiative, with a second application to open in early Fall 2023 for an additional 300 grants.
