Library Services & Technology Act (LSTA) Grant Programs
LIBRARY SERVICES AND TECHNOLOGY ACT (LSTA)
Secretary of State's office is pleased to offer Missouri libraries several opportunities to improve library service through the use of federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds. These grants are based on LSTA priorities and Missouri State Library goals as approved in our LSTA five-year and state fiscal year project plans:
A list of grant opportunities for the next round of grants is below. Please note application deadlines and project grant periods for the programs you are considering. Applications are welcome from public, academic, special, institutional and public school libraries in Missouri, although all grants are not available to all institutions. See the LSTA Grant Call Schedule to see open grant calls, deadlines and library eligibility.
Libraries should be aware that accepting an LSTA grant may require compliance with the Federal Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA). CIPA compliance will depend on the specific use of the LSTA funds awarded. If CIPA compliance is required, a grant recipient must certify that it has a policy of Internet safety that includes the operation of a technology protection measure (filter) with respect to any of the recipient’s computers with Internet access. The nature of the certification depends upon the type of library making application.
For more information regarding these program opportunities for your library, contact Terry Blauvelt, Grants Officer, at (417) 895-6670 or (800) 325-0131.
