The California State Library’s LSTA grant opportunities: Support improvement, innovation, and experimentation in library services; Build capacity among the California library community in grant-writing and grant management; and Help California’s local libraries develop services that effectively respond to community needs and align with community aspirations.
The Sustainable California Libraries grant program funds climate and sustainability related community-driven programming for adults and intergenerational groups. The initiative also fosters connections between California library workers supporting climate resilience in communities. The purpose of these grants is to fund services, programming, and educational opportunities focused on sustainability and climate resilience.
About 8 in 10 California adults say climate change is a top concern or one of several important concerns for them personally. As community hubs that provide trusted information about climate change and resilience, effectively connect with community-based organizations, and provide relevant programming for all ages, libraries are uniquely positioned to support climate resilience. The purpose of the Sustainable California Libraries grants is to fund services, programming, and educational opportunities focused on sustainability and climate resilience. Projects should demonstrate an understanding of community needs, aspirations, and assets. Public programming, outreach, and at least one project partner or community connection is required.
