The Arizona Center for Rural Health (AzCRH) in partnership with the Arizona Library Association (AzLA) is announcing a mini-grant opportunity for Arizona “small and rural” public libraries. This opportunity is part of a larger initiative – AZ Librarians Enhancing Resilient Rural Communities – that aims to support rural libraries in community efforts that promote local resilience, address inequities, and build community cohesion through capacity-building and training on a variety of topics including disaster response, addressing misinformation, and fundamentals of public health.
Available funding for this opportunity encompasses priority areas that seek to reduce health and health- related disparities in rural populations in Arizona that may be disproportionately affected by inequities related to geographic isolation, limited resources, and structural policies.
