Grant Writing


Grant funding can help fill budget gaps to support important library functions like programming, collection development, and outreach - among others. While most grant makers have different requirements and target audiences, Alabama librarians can get an edge on the competition by learning (a) where to look for grants and (b) general grant writing skills that are useful across the board. This knowledge (plus experience) is the best way to prepare for the competitive grants process.
