Review Past Grant Awards
Review the types of projects that have received LSTA sub-grants in the past.
The IMLS and the Indiana State Library encourage applicants to design their grant programs using Outcomes Based Planning & Evaluation (OBPE). A free self-paced tutorial at the Shaping Outcomes website will walk you through the process of planning an evaluative user-centered project. The LSTA Toolkit is another excellent resource for OBPE instruction and templates. While not a requirement for application, an understanding of OBPE will help you complete your application and will make your application more competitive.

Request an Early Review
You may request an advance review of your application by the LSTA Grant Consultant (firstname.lastname@example.org). The consultant will make recommendations for improvement but does not approve applications. Applications will be reviewed at the consultant’s discretion as time allows.
