Libraries and Autism is accepting applications for its Autism Welcome Here: Library Programs, Services and More grant program. This grant is funded by Barbara Klipper, librarian and author.
Each year, a total of $5,000.00 will be awarded. Depending on the applications received, one grant for the full amount or multiple grants for smaller amounts totaling $5,000.00 may be awarded. Any type of library in the US or Canada can apply, and the proposal can fund projects and services for any age group. Applicants may initiate a new, creative program or service, bring an already-existing, successful program or service to their library for the first time, or enhance a program or service they already offer. All programs or services must benefit people with autism and/or their families, directly or indirectly. Funds may be used to hire a trainer to present a workshop, to buy program materials, to pay for staff, etc. For more information, and to apply, visit the website: http://librariesandautism.org/grant.
