Grants and Funding from the National Institutes of Health

Thursday, January 29th, 2015

The Specialized Information Services Outreach and Special Populations Branch (OSPB) manages and develops programs to eliminate disparities in health information access. OSPB achieves their mission by providing community outreach support, by training health professionals on NLM’s health information databases, and by designing websites that discuss the concerns of various racial and ethnic groups.

As OSPB reimagines our NLM-OSP-L Listserv, we will continue to share NLM/NIH funding opportunities of interest to health professionals and public health workers dedicated to health information outreach.

NLM supports a wide variety of research-related programs:

For example, the NIH’s Resource Grants include Education Projects (R25). R25 codes indicate programs that promote an appreciation for and interest in biomedical research, provide additional training in specific areas, and/or to develop ways to disseminate scientific discovery into public health and community applications.

Thank you.

NN/LM NER Technology Improvement Awards and Exhibit Awards

Monday, January 26th, 2015

The NN/LM NER still has funding available for the 2015-2016 contract year! Our Technology Improvements Awards and our Exhibit Awards are a great place to start.

Would you like to purchase a 3D printer for your library? Would you want to purchase an additional computer to improve resource access for your users? Or, purchase iPads to bring educational videos to the patients bedside. Maybe purchase equipment for a training room or expand your reach in an existing one. Do you have a different idea for a new technology that your library could purchase to improve or broaden electronic access to health information, but just can’t find the funds in your budget? Apply for a Technology Improvement Award!

Do you want to attend a local or regional conference to promote your library and would be willing to promote the National Library of Medicine as well? We’ll even lend you our displays and provide educational materials. We can help fund registration and fees, travel, and other related expenses for this type of activity. Just take the following steps to apply for funding.

Steps to apply for funding:

  • Explore our Funding Opportunities.
  • Contact Mary Piorun with your interest to apply.  Tell us about your potential project and how much funding you are seeking.  We can provide you with samples of successful proposals.
  • Plan and write your proposal/budget.
  • Submit your proposal by email.
  • Proposals are reviewed by the NN/LM NER, the National Library of Medicine, and a committee of NER Network Members.


It’s helpful to know your funder’s budget cycle. Our budget year is May 1 – April 30th.  Though, we have ongoing funding.  So, it’s always good to give us a call when you have an idea.  Projects are encouraged to start in May and wrap up by the end of April.  Smaller projects ($1,000 – $3,000) are often funded mid-year.

Proposal Planning Support:

We are always happy to consult with you about a potential project.  Also, currently Janet Cowen is working with us as a Project Planning Consultant.  We can connect you with her for tips and guidance to plan your project and draft your proposal.
