Eligible Entities

Through their governing authority, accredited public libraries, local public library systems, libraries that are members of the TexShare Library Consortium, or nonprofit organizations that are applying on behalf of accredited libraries and/or TexShare members, are eligible to apply for funds. An applicant that is a nonprofit organization is eligible only if the organization’s organizational charter, operating guidelines, or mission statement includes providing direct support for affiliated library activities and goals as a defined objective. Public library applicants must be accredited by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission for the fiscal year in which the grant contracts are issued.

Focus Area

The TexTreasures Grant program is administered by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) as a component of the TexShare program. The TexTreasures Grant program aids and encourages libraries to provide access to their special or unique holdings and to make information about these holdings available to library users across the state. Programs focusing on community engagement or involving collaboration with other community organizations are strongly encouraged. Applicants may propose projects designed to increase accessibility through a wide range of activities such as organizing, cataloging, indexing, or digitizing local materials. Applications for FY 2025 may be submitted in one of two TexTreasures programs: 1) TexTreasures Basic, which will award grants of up to $10,000 to small libraries (serving a population of up to 25,000) with little or no experience with digitization. Funding will support vendor contract services to increase access to collections with local or regional significance. 2) TexTreasures Original, which will continue to support libraries seeking to provide access to special or unique collections of statewide interest and greater complexity. The maximum award is $40,000 for applications from single institutions and $50,000 for collaborative grant projects.
