Using our federal Library Services and Technology Act – Grants to States grant, we are offering awards between $2,000 and $20,000 to eligible organizations (public libraries and library consortia) to address literacy needs across New Jersey.

LSTA 22 funds are allocated to address literacy needs including but not limited to early literacy, family literacy, adult literacy, digital literacy and English language learning activities through a competitive grant program. Projects must be designed to provide training or other literacy-focused support or activities for adults, children and anyone with limited literacy skills.
