For 2015 LSTA awards and beyond: Note that the implementation of new federal regulations (2 CFR Part 200) which replace the current federal cost principles (2 CFR Parts 220, 225, and 230), uniform administrative requirements (A-102 and A-110), and audit requirements (A-133) will likely change how we operate our grant programs and certain requirements that are found within our guidelines and grant agreements. The new federal regulations become effective on December 26, 2014. We are currently working to understand the extent of changes and make appropriate revisions to our programs.
Grant awards issued in 2014 and before continue to be governed by the current federal cost principles (2 CFR Parts 220, 225, and 230), uniform administrative requirements (A-102 and A-110), and audit requirements (A-133).

Qualifying libraries, including public libraries, schools and their school libraries, academic institutions and their libraries, Tribal libraries, and non-profit institutions and their libraries, may apply for PD grants.
