From the GMR: Funding Opportunities from the GMR

From the GMR list - reminder of funding opportunities. -Liz

Hello Network Members,

Since many of you have recently returned from the Medical Library Association meeting and are eager to initiate new projects for your libraries, June 1st seems like a great time to remind you that we have multiple funding opportunities for Network members for Year 2 of our contract with NLM. For a summary, go to: http://nnlm.gov/gmr/funding/current.html

We offer two types of funding, Awards are for under $5000 and Subcontracts are over $5000. The Requests for Proposals (RFPs) have some minor revisions, so we urge you to check the latest versions on our Web site to make sure your applications are complete.

This year we have four Awards, including Exhibit Awards (up to $1500), Outreach Express Awards (up to $4900), Professional Instruction Awards (up to $1500), and Technology Improvement Awards (up to $4900). Please use the online application forms linked to the RFPs to make your submissions.

We are pleased to announce that this year we will be offering MedlinePlus Go Local subcontracts at $25,000. In addition, we will again offer subcontracts in the areas of Consumer Health, Health Disparities, and Public Health. These latter three subcontracts are available at two levels of funding: $12,000 and $35,000. Online applications are NOT available for the subcontracts, but we have provided outlines within the RFPs to assist you with constructing your proposals.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions about any of our funding opportunities or about the application process.

We look forward to hearing from many of you during Year 2.
