Construction Grant Information Session

Construction Grant Information Session

If your library is thinking of applying for a construction grant from the CT State Library, this session will walk you through the process. You'll learn what you need to do before applying as well as what's required after you receive the grant. Don't get tripped up -- just plan ahead and be prepared.

We'll cover funding categories, application process, grant application evaluation, timeline, grant contract, starting and managing the project, state requirements, and advice.

Optional discussion of the library's grant-funded energy conservation and code compliance project afterward from 11:30-12:30, with insights and lessons learned from the library director. Stick around if you have time!
