Public Library Accessibility and Improvement Grant Program
The competitive Public Library Accessibility and Improvement Grant program began in 1994 as a competitive dollar-for-dollar matching grant program exclusively to remove architectural barriers in public library buildings. In 2005, the Legislature amended and expanded the legislation to permit grant funds to be used for renovating or expanding an existing building, accessibility projects or constructing a new library building. Funding comes from the sale of General Revenue Obligation Bonds. The 2012 Legislature appropriated $1 million for the 2013-2014 biennium for this grant program.
