The Lois Lenski Covey Foundation offers grants for bookmobile programs across the nation that serve children from disadvantaged populations. The grants support organizations that operate a lending bookmobile that travels into neighborhoods populated by underserved youth. The funds must be used to purchase fiction or nonfiction books published for young people, preschool through grade 8—from Early Reader books through Young Adult and Hi-Lo books. Bookmobile programs operated by nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations, public libraries, and schools are eligible for funding. Priority is given to organizations that serve economically or socially at-risk children, have limited book budgets, and demonstrate real need. Awards range from $500 to $3,000 and are specifically for book purchases.
Deadline: Applications must be postmarked by September 1, 2021; applications postmarked after September 1 will be evaluated early in 2022.
