Each year, Council meets for the final review of the LSTA competitive grant applications. Review packets, containing each library's application and backup documentation (letters of support, job descriptions, technology specs, etc.) will be made available at least one month before the meeting, as will rating forms and scoring sheets.
Applicants will also be in attendance during this meeting, either in person, via videoconference, or teleconference for a 15 minute Q&A session to go over any aspect that may need additional clarification.
After the grant Q&A, there will be an open discussion. At this point, application scores may be adjusted. NSLAPR staff will then gather score sheets, tally figures, and present final rankings. These ranking represent Council's recommendations for LSTA funding. The NSLAPR Division Administrator will make final LSTA funding decisions contingent upon final federal LSTA allocations made to the state.
NOTE: Grant Applications are confidential until the review and ranking session during the Council Meeting. Please do not share content or discuss the grant projects until that time.
