Funding & Grants
The State Library of Ohio administers the IMLS LSTA Grant, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Opportunity Online Hardware Grant, and provides E-Rate grant application resources and support to libraries.
Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Opportunity Online Hardware Grant - A primary goal of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's U.S. Libraries initiative is to help public libraries permanently sustain free access to computers and the Internet for people who need it most. The Foundation believes helping libraries support high-quality technology services is one of the best ways to ensure that all people-regardless of their economic status, level of education, or where they live-have equal access to opportunity, information, and learning.
E-Rate - The Schools and Libraries Program of the Universal Service Fund, commonly known as "E-Rate," is administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) under the direction of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and provides discounts to assist most schools and libraries in the United States to obtain affordable telecommunications, Internet access and advanced technologies.
LSTA - The State Library administers the LSTA (Library Services and Technology Act) program, funded through the independent federal agency IMLS (Institute of Museum and Library Services).
