Applications are now open for funding!



As part of Libraries Lead with Digital Skills, an initiative of ALA and PLA, sponsored by Google, NJ libraries are invited to apply for funding to host digital skills workshops for job seekers and small business owners in your communities.


Applications are now open through Jan. 15, 2020.


Accepted libraries will receive:

  • Funding - $1,000 with minimal application and reporting requirements, with the opportunity to receive an additional $3,000 bonus if your program is selected for a Spotlight Award.
  • Marketing support - ALA and Google can help get the word out about your program with social media guidance, marketing assets and more.
  • Technical guidance - Have questions about curriculum resources or programs? Ask Google! Need some best practices in library programming? PLA is here to help!
  • A community of practice - Troubleshoot challenges and share ideas with other libraries that receive funding alongside Google, ALA and PLA.
  • Advocacy tools - Use our impact evaluation tools and advocacy resources to create and sustain the digital skills plan for your community.

We strongly encourage all libraries to apply, as it will be a great opportunity to shine a spotlight on how you are supporting your community's economic growth through digital skills training. Please feel free to pass this opportunity along to other libraries within your network.
