Competitive Grants

**2017 Facilities Competitive Grant DEADLINE October 1, 2017**

**Facilities Competitive Grant Application (Word Document)**

**Please contact Gail Santy before submitting a Facilities Competitive Grant Application. If your library applies for one of the two $10,000 grants, you are then not eligible to apply for one of the $5,000 grants. Historically, one library has demonstrated an overwhelming need for a $10,000 grant. Gail suggests you work with her during this process to help you ascertain which would be the best grant for your library.**

CKLS Competitive Grant Frequently Asked Questions

CKLS Annual System Grant Questionnaire

The Central Kansas Library System is pleased to provide System grants to all member  public libraries in 2017. The System Grant online forms and paper version (pdf) and grant reporting documents, along with the grant spreadsheet can be found below.

The questionnaire must be submitted electronically using the online forms, or your worksheet must be sent to arrive by February 3, 2017. The questionnaire may be submitted by paper, but we strongly prefer that you do it online (which proves to be much easier for you and CKLS to handle). We will make every effort to mail the first half of your System grant by the end of February in 2017. Please call (leave a voice mail if necessary) or email for assistance, we are happy to give you step-by-step instructions.
