Library Rescue Grant Application
Please take into account when describing your proposed project that the purpose of the library rescue grant is to assist a library in implementing a project that will significantly improve library services to have a positive impact on the community / library users / library staff. The program will engage a team of volunteers, consultants, and stakeholders who will conduct intensive hands-on work, lead training, and provide support over the course of a 5-day work week. At the end of the week, the participating library will have its immediate and short-term challenges addressed, with an action plan for follow-up tactics and strategies.

This program is funded by the US Institute of Museum and Library Services through a grant from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (2023). All applicants must be public libraries accredited by the Texas State Library. Questions, please call 361-212-0099 or email Applications accepted on a rolling basis.
