Our Equity in Action Grant program funds digital projects that focus on anti-racist practices and marginalized communities. Rooted in community and collaboration, this program encourages meaningful initiatives which cultivate knowledge exchange, and a pipeline for discovery and access. We’re very excited to announce the call for applications for the 2023-2024 cycle of METRO’s Equity in Action grant program.
Our Digitization Grant Program helps our member libraries build and maintain digital collections.
We launched our Digitization Grant Program in January 2005 to support projects involving significant collections held by METRO member libraries in New York City and Westchester County. Since that time, we’ve awarded over $900,000 in grants to support 92 digital projects. Our grant program is supported in part by funds from the New York State Regional Bibliographic Databases Program.
