Title and Grant Funding – updated 2/18/2021
Ohio Schools (public, private, and catholic) can take advantage of the recently released ESSER II Sec 18003 d-9 (educational technology) funds to cover the cost of databases and eBook collections such as these! What’s more, ESSER II Sec 18003 d-10 (mental health support) funds can also be used to cover the cost of these collections due to Gale’s careful curation, which includes SEL content.
Looking to expend Title 1, CARES Act, or other federal funding? Gale eBooks are an excellent use of these funds and EdTech is stated as an allowable use of CARES Act funding! Local mini grants, PTO grants/funds, and endowments can also help support the one-time collection cost. Need more reasons why you should consider Gale eBooks for your library?
