Grant Opportunity – Community Connect : Digital Access at Home

Community Connect: Digital Access at Home, an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA) and Capital One Bank, offers grants and resources to help support digital access and financial capability in rural communities nationwide.

Twenty rural public libraries will receive five Wi-Fi hotspots (including service contract) for lending to patrons; a $2,000 stipend to support implementing financial capability programs; curated book lists and more. Participating libraries will be selected through a peer-reviewed, competitive application process.

Public libraries are eligible if they serve a legal service area population of 25,000 or less and are in a rural community at least five miles from an urbanized area, per the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) definition.

The deadline to apply is August 26, 2020.
