Could you apply for the Back to Books Grant to help cover the cost?

    Our small school (grades 6-12) has enjoyed 2 trial research database subscriptions for Sept., Explora & Gale. (Actually, we get Explora through Oct.!)      NOW, I want to approach our administration to see if the school district might fund all or part of a subscription to one of these. The cost of a subscription would wipe out my tiny library budget. I could scrabble together some grant $ and/or do some crowd-funding to cover part of the cost, but I really feel the district (which doesn't buy textbooks anymore in our building) should cover the cost.
     However, I'm concerned that the principal and superintendent may balk about supporting the cost due to pandemic-produced and other shortfalls.
My question: Does anyone have suggestions on how to strengthen my case?
Thanks in advance...
