Peter - I reworked the title to this blog post based on your comment - thx

Newton Minow responds: The $500,000 is to get the organization launched and won't be enough to make significant grants to libraries, schools etc. Once the organization is launched, it will then have to raise money from both public and private sources (Congress, Foundations, etc) and then invite applications for grants, with established criteria and standards to be developed and made public.

Mary, this is great. But is the $500,000 seed money for library projects, as your title suggests? If so, what are they looking for and how do you get it? Or will the seed money fund the start-up and operations of the National Center, which will then try to get more money to fund library projects?
