2012 National Grant Program Application Deadline is September 9, 2011.
The Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy is pleased to announce our 2012 National Grant competition. The Foundation's grant-making program seeks to develop or expand projects designed to support the development of literacy skills for adult primary care givers and their children. A total of approximately $650,000 will be awarded; no grant request should exceed $65,000.
In order to be considered eligible for a grant, an organization must meet the following criteria:
-The organization must have current nonprofit or public status and have been in existence for two or more years as of the date of the application
-The organization must have maintained fiscal accountability
-The organization must operate an instructional literacy program that has been in existence for at least 2 years, and includes one or more of the following components: literacy for adults; parent education; pre-literacy or literacy instruction for children pre-k to grade 3; intergenerational literacy activities.
The National Center for Family Literacy is accepting grant applications from education and community organizations working to provide support for Latino and other families whose members want to earn college degrees. Made possible with funding from the MetLife Foundation, the grants are designed to expand the reach of the Family Literacy - Community College Partnership Initiative to communities and programs across the U.S.
The grant program is intended to broaden the availability and targeted use of a recently developed comprehensive set of online tools for local organizations, schools, and community colleges. The tools are designed to encourage families to learn about attending college and to help communities build pathways from family literacy and GED programs to community college. The resources include online lessons with activities for Spanish-speaking families to help increase their investment in and pursuit of educational opportunities; a program guide for family and adult literacy programs; a case study on partnerships between family literacy programs and community colleges; a practical guide on how to make those partnerships more effective; and an examination of the impediments to attaining a postsecondary education, including how literacy programs can help with the transition and increase college graduation rates for non-traditional students.
Examples of grantee implementation can include community colleges and literacy programs establishing partnerships to improve the transition and success of non-traditional students in postsecondary educational settings; community colleges and literacy programs working to align GED instruction with the skills and knowledge needed for college and careers; community-based programs and schools beginning or enhancing their work with families to promote investments in education and successful pathways to college; and community colleges and literacy programs working to strengthen existing partnerships and improve upon non-traditional student transitions into postsecondary education. Grantees may use one or all of the toolkit resources in their proposed project.
Ten grants of up to $25,000 will be awarded.
