This document provides general guidance to applicant agencies on the procedures for applying for and the use of State funds.  State funds must be used in accordance with applicable State laws, regulations, program guidelines, and directives, including but not limited to:

  • State Authorizing Legislation
  • State Education Law and State Regulations of the Commissioner
  • State Education Department Policy

 

All questions concerning the contents of this document should be referred directly to Barbara Lilley, State Aid Coordinator, at (518) 486-4864.

NOTE: These procedures do not apply to Special Legislative Appropriations/Grants, state funded competitive grants (for example, Adult Literacy, Conservation/Preservation), state aided programs not included in this initiative (Construction for Public Libraries Aid, Coordinated Collection Development Aid, Documentary Heritage Program), or federally funded grants (Library Services and Technology Act [LSTA]).

Applicant agencies should submit the following items to the New York State Library, Division of Library Development, as a part of their annual application for state funds.  Failure to submit the online proposed budget application and signed FS-20 forms in a timely fashion could result in payment delays.

  • Submit the online proposed budget application forms that include fiscal and narrative information for state aid only. 
  • Submit three (3) completed copies of the FS-20 Proposed Budget for Library Aid.  Each copy must have the original signature, in blue ink, of the library system director or the applicant’s chief administrative officer or his/her official designee.
  • The New York State Library will review each proposed budget application’s fiscal and narrative information.  When the proposed budget applications and FS-20 forms are reviewed for release of state aid, the FS-20 forms will be forwarded to the Grants Finance Office of the New York State Education Department.  A formal payment notification will be sent to the library system, BOCES/Big Five Cities or applicant agency by the State Education Department Grants Finance Office.  NOTE:  The actual amount of payment may vary from the original amount on the FS-20 and/or proposed Budget Application form due to legislative, statutory, regulatory, or policy requirements.  The New York State Library will notify the library system director or agency’s chief administrative officer if there is a change in the payment amounts and/or if any modifications must be made to the proposed Budget Application.

PURPOSE OF THE FS-20 FOR LIBRARY AID FORM

  • To assist the State Education Department in making accurate payments.
  • The signed FS-20 form is required by the State Education Department and the Office of the State Comptroller.  No payment will be processed by the State Education Department without a signed FS-20 form.

SCHOOL LIBRARY SYSTEMS CATEGORICAL AID FOR AUTOMATION

Statutory Reference (Basic Aid):

Education Law § 284(1)(g)
Commissioner's Regulations 90.18

Guidelines

15.1 Code 15 – Professional Salaries: Indicate total FTE and salaries for each professional system employee; complete one record for each employee. The specific job title and name of the person performing job duties, as well as the Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) must be identified for each position. Full-time for this program equals 0.83 FTE (10 months) to 1.0 FTE (12 months). If the total FTE combined in both the Operating Aid and the Categorical Aid for Automation is less than 0.83 FTE, the educational agency supporting the School Library System program must apply for a variance from the New York State Library. If other sources supplement mandated salaries, provide FTE and source of funds in the narrative (e.g., administration of library-related CO-SERS at a BOCES or district library services provided by School Library System staff in the Big 5 Cities).
