Some grants available to RAILS libraries are below.

Continuing Education (CE) Grant Opportunities Expanded
RAILS is pleased to announce that grant opportunities to fund continuing education events are now open to RAILS libraries, networking groups, and library consortia. To qualify, CE events must be made available to all RAILS member libraries and be of interest to a wide range of library staff. Review the grant conditions on the RAILS website and complete the online application. The deadline for the next award period is March 31. Contact Joe Filapek, RAILS Director of Consulting and Continuing Education, with questions.

Multitype Collaborative Grants
RAILS Multitype Collaborative Grants encourage our member libraries of different types (academic, public, school, and special) to work together on collaborative projects. Each grant project must include at least two different types of libraries. See past recipients.

To learn more about the grants and to hear from grant awardees, attend the member update in person or on RAILS Live, April 11. The next application deadline is April 20. See application form/details.
