Funding Mechanisms Extend our Reach
NN/LM PSR will use a variety of mechanisms to leverage our funding and outreach throughout the region during the 2006–2011 contract period. These include Express Outreach Awards, Internet Connectivity awards, the Library Improvement Program, and MedlinePlus Go Local awards. In the 2001–2006 contract, the efforts of subcontractors reached 72% of our outreach audience. In making awards, we try to fund activities in each state and jurisdiction of the region, adjusting the level according to population needs in those areas. Projects are generally completed within 12 months after the award.
