Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $15,000 to USA institutions, libraries, and organizations in multiple states that provide health information to build disaster response capacity. Funding is intended for projects to help organizations address all stages of disaster management, including mitigation, preparedness, recovery, and response. Applicants must be located in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Texas, or New Mexico.

The goals of the Disaster Preparedness & Recovery Award are to fund projects to:

  • Prepare organizations to effectively prepare for and/or respond to disasters using evidence-based practices
  • Integrate and promote disaster-related resources, services, and tools of the NLM Specialized Information Services into educational programs or continuity plans.
  • Enhance disaster preparedness through education, programming, and partnerships
  • Develop solutions and mechanisms that support the continuity of health information-based services
  • Train individuals, professionals, and communities to effectively find authoritative disaster health information
  • Encourage collaboration between libraries, community, faith-based, and volunteer organizations, hospitals, and first responders to develop programs or engage in joint exercises that enhance coordination of resources in response to a disaster

Proposals should be directed at planning, mitigating, responding, and recovering from disaster events using evidence-based practices and authoritative disaster tools.

Projects may include the following (other creative ideas are encouraged):

  • Evaluating and improving disaster preparedness plans and policies
  • Developing organizational and/or environmental audits to determine readiness to response to a disaster
  • Facilitated programming such as crisis mapping workshops or tabletop exercises
  • Hosting a summit to bring together emergency planners and librarians to enhance disaster preparedness and response capabilities
  • Training and education on the use of authoritative disaster preparedness and response information resources (eg. MedlinePlus, WISER, Disaster Lit®, CHEMM, NIH Disaster Research Response DR2 and others)
  • Developing response tools, such as mobile programming, pop-up labs or other services that contribute to the continuity of operations
  • Education and professional development on disaster preparedness and response topics
  • Pilot programs that require joint coordination with an external partner such as the fire department to respond to disasters in novel ways

Funding will cover (these are examples only and are not meant to be all-inclusive): Personnel, equipment, software, Internet service provider fees, supplies, travel and reproduction.
