CARES Act Funding for Ohio Libraries



As part of the emergency CARES Act legislation passed by the U. S. Congress earlier this spring, the State Library of Ohio has received stimulus grant funds to support libraries throughout the state to purchase equipment and supplies related to the current pandemic. To help distribute these funds, the State Library of Ohio has created the CARES Act Mini-Grant Program.  The program provides $3000 in grant funds that can be used to purchase a wide variety of materials and tools from PPE and Plexiglass shields to signal boosters and washable keyboards/mice. Attendees to this session will have the opportunity to

  • Discuss the requirements of the CARES Act Mini-Grant Program
