NN/LM grants for health information programs
The National Library of Medicine, through the National Network of Libraries of Medicine funds a variety of outreach projects, especially those that engage multiple community partnerships in addressing the health information needs of the public. These projects typically involve multi type library and community partnership with the goal of improving access to health information through a variety of mechanisms.
The NN/LM consists of eight regions and each region, from time to time, solicits proposals for projects they would like to fund. The NN/LM is especially interested in funding projects that target rural, inner city, minority and underserved populations, and also senior citizens and low literacy populations. They type of awards and the amount of funds vary from region to region. The NN/LM funding web site contains information on such announcements. Many of these grants go unfunded due to lack of applications!!
