LSTA Grants: Help on Community Needs Assessment

All the information you need to apply for and manage an LSTA grant.


Most grants require the applicant to demonstrate that their project is going to meet very clearly delineated community needs. This is true for LSTA literacy grants and for LSTA planning grants.

Here are some specific tools that were distributed for the August 13, 2020 DLD webinar "What Patrons Really Want: Assessing Community Needs."  If you would like help using these tools or others for community needs assessment for a grant project, please contact and she will connect  you with experienced DLD staff.

Join us at the next community needs assessment workshop on January 27, 2021 at 10:00 am.  Register here.
