Grants to Libraries

The State Library of North Carolina administers two grant funds, Federally allocated funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) through the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) and State allocated funds through the Aid to Public Libraries Fund. 

In addition to our traditional LSTA award cycle, that opens in September and closes March 1, SLNC frequently offers mini-grant opportunities to support libraries across the state on relevant topics and themes affecting the world, the country, our state, our libraries, and our communities. When available mini-grant opportunities will be featured here.
