Grants for library white space projects – deadline March 27

It would be great to see some funding come into Minnesota…

“Beyond the Walls” Deadline EXTENDED!
Apply before March 27, 2017
$15,0000 subgrant awards to fund five community TV WhiteSpace projects.
Tens of millions of people in the U.S. rely solely or in part on public libraries to access Internet. Libraries are crucial in connecting communities. With TV WhiteSpace technology people can connect beyond library walls. The “Beyond The Walls” Awards will provide five $15,000 grants to libraries for the most innovative proposals to use TV WhiteSpace (TVWS) technologies to enable new library hotspots in the service of their communities.

Thank you to those who have already submitted proposals. There have been some very strong proposals already, but the door remains open for two more weeks! Spread the word about this opportunity and apply today.

Apply now!
