Connecticut allocates some LSTA funding each year for subgrants to libraries for projects in specific categories. This section of the guide describes the policies and procedures related to review of grant applications, grant awards, contracts, financial matters, project monitoring, and grantee reporting. It complements the procedural information for applicants and project directors that is available in the LSTA Grants page.
The LSTA Coordinator should review and update the subgrant application, instructions, and forms each year before releasing them at the beginning of the grant application period.
The LSTAC is responsible for the creation and presentation of grant application information sessions or workshops to prepare potential grantees to participate in the application process. In order to provide a broad opportunity for potential grantees to attend, information sessions should be held in various geographic areas throughout the state or online.
Information sessions are generally held at least bimonthly, and more frequently in December through March as the literacy grant deadline approaches.
IMLS has specific outcome questions for certain types of projects, including for literacy grant projects and strategic planning projects. See the Evaluation page on the LSTA Grants guide.
