Keystone Fund grants are used to help public libraries build new facilities, renovate older buildings, and make services more accessible. These projects include ramps, automatic doors, and elevators for the disabled as well as vital structural, energy-savings, and safety. Grants are limited to $500,000.
Since the inception of the Keystone Fund, the Office of Commonwealth Libraries has received hundreds of applications from municipalities requesting more than $50 million in grant funds. To date, approximately $23,640,000 in Keystone Fund grants have been awarded to support 215 projects in 48 different counties across the Commonwealth.
