The Institute of Museum and Library Services' Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) Grants to States program is the largest source of federal funding support for library services in the United States. The Grants to States program allocates a base amount to each state plus a supplemental amount based on population. For each of the 50 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia, the base amount is $680,000 each. You can see recent allotments for all the states here.
The Nevada State Library, Archives and Public Records (NSLAPR) uses Grants to State funds to meet LSTA specified priorities (20 U.S.C. § 9141) as well as Nevada's 5 Year Plan goals, either through statewide programs or competitive subgrants to eligible public, school, special, and academic libraries throughout Nevada. In order to remain eligibile for Grants to State LSTA funds, Nevada must meet statutory Matching and Maintenance of Effort (MOE) requirements.
LSTA funds help Nevada libraries solidify their roles as community educational centers, through planning, assessment, training, and partnerships, building capacity, and identifying user access needs.
