“Early Reading First Program”

The Department of Education is now inviting applications under the Early Reading First (ERF) program. Part of President Bush’s “Good Start, Grow Smart” initiative, ERF is designed to transform existing early education programs into centers of excellence that provide high-quality, early education to young children, especially those from low-income homes. Specifically, the program strives to prepare young children to enter kindergarten with the necessary language, cognitive, and early reading skills to prevent reading difficulties and ensure school success. Pre-applications, from eligible school districts and community organizations, are due by April 11.
