Dollar General Literacy Foundation Invites Applications for Adult Literacy Grants
Deadline: February 28, 2013

The Dollar General Literacy Foundation’s Adult Literacy Grants program annually awards funding to nonprofit organizations that provide direct service to adults in need of literacy assistance.

Organizations must provide help in one of the following instructional areas: adult basic education, general education diploma (GED) preparation, or English language acquisition.

Applications will only be accepted from eligible 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations and/or educational institutions (K-12 private and public schools, and colleges and universities) and/or public libraries. All applicants must be located in and provide direct services in a state in which Dollar General operates, and must be located within twenty miles of a Dollar General store.

The maximum grant amount is $15,000.
