The Shortgrass Library System receives an annual Operating Grant from the Province of Alberta. The grant is based on the population of member jurisdictions in the Shortgrass region (see 2016/2017 Library System Operating Grants). The Shortgrass Library System also receives operating revenues from member municipalities and member library boards. These revenues are based on a per capita levy which is reviewed annually by the Board of Trustees.

|2016:||$5.02 per capita|
|2017:||$5.02 per capita|
