Public Library Grant Application
Blackfoot Public Library Grant Program
Welcome to Blackfoot Communications' portal for supporting our communities, powered by Submittable. We have streamlined our application process by using this online portal for community and education applications. If this your first time accessing this Application, you must first create a Submittable account to complete the form (see "Create Your Account" below). Once your Submittable account is created, you can use the same log-in/password account for future requests. If you run into issues setting up your account, please check out the FAQs.
Community Support Criteria
At Blackfoot, we see our jobs as more than just providing services. We continue to strive to be good neighbors and remain committed to building solid, long-term relationships with the communities we serve. Blackfoot believes public libraries are dynamic, versatile community centers and a vital, integral part of our communities. We also believe that by returning a small portion of the investments libraries have made within our service areas, that investment betters our local communities. Blackfoot has been awarding small library grants for over 18 years.
Our Library Grant focuses on technological innovation: electronic equipment and/or technology programs that incorporate the use of new technologies or use current technology in different ways to improve access, services, or support to library customers. We’ve learned that many of our local libraries need more learning tools to enhance their learning environment.
Each library may submit one application; however, not all libraries will receive funds due to limited funding.
