Libraries and Autism: We're Connected - Grants Available

Libraries and Autism: We're Connected promotes awareness of the needs of individuals with autism spectrum disorder and their families to the library community.
Through the organization's annual Autism Welcome Here: Library Programs, Services and More program, grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded to projects and services for any age group. Applicants may propose to initiate a new creative program or service; bring a successful already-existing program or service to their library; or enhance a program or service they already offer. All programs or services must benefit people with autism or their families, directly or indirectly. Funds may be used to hire a trainer to present a workshop, to buy program materials, to pay for staff, etc.
Any type of library in the United States or Canada may apply.
See the Libraries and Autism website for complete program guidelines, information about previous grant recipients, and application instructions.
