Hi! Many of you are starting to work on your library budget for the 2015-2016 fiscal year and need to estimate how much 2016 Ready to Read Grant money you'll receive. Typically the State Library recommends you use the amount of your current Ready to Read Grant as your budget estimate, but if the proposed changes to the Ready to Read Grant pass that may not be the best estimate to use for your library budget.

If it's easier for your library to work with receiving less money than you actually budgeted for, then estimate that next year you will receive 9.888% more Ready to Read Grant money than you just received for your 2014-2015 Ready to Read Grant. The amount of money you just received is listed here.<http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/youthsvcs/ReadytoRead/R2RprojectDescriptions2014-2015.pdf> If you are a minimum grant library, estimate that you will receive $1200.

If it's easier for your library to work with receiving more money than you actually budgeted for, then estimate that you will receive the same amount of money next year as you just received for your 2014-2015 Ready to Read Grant. The amount of money you just received is listed here.<http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/youthsvcs/ReadytoRead/R2RprojectDescriptions2014-2015.pdf> If you are a minimum grant library, estimate that you will receive $1000.

The grant cycle will not change which means you will receive your 2016 grant funds at the end of December 2015, and may spend them January 1, 2016 - December 31, 2016.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,
Katie
