Small Grants 2021-2022

REFORMA Colorado spends up to 20% of its annual operating budget (as of July 1 of each year) on small grants to individual members.  For fiscal year July 2021 – June 2022 REFORMA Colorado has allocated $600 to this program which will fund four $150 Small Grants.

There are four application deadlines throughout the year.  Applications will be reviewed by REFORMA Colorado Officers.  Funds will be awarded until the total allocation is spent; therefore, REFORMA Colorado members are encouraged to apply early.

One major change from the previous fiscal year:  In previous years, there were two types of Small Grants:  (1) to support library programming at the member’s library/library system; or (2) to support individual professional development (e.g. individual conference expenses).  Due to limited funds available for FY 2021/2022, Small Grants will only be awarded to help fund library programming at a member’s library or library system.
