National Center for Family Literacy Grant to Provide Support for Hispanic/Immigrant Family Literacy Efforts

Deadline: February 20, 2009 (Capability Survey)

The National Center for Family Literacy ( seeks applications from U.S. school districts to implement the highly successful Toyota Family Literacy Program. The opportunity builds on Toyota’s commitment to the program, which currently serves seventy-five elementary schools in twenty-five cities across the United States.

The program targets U.S. communities with large or fast-growing Hispanic and other immigrant populations with a family literacy approach designed to increase basic language and literacy skills. It also helps parents develop the specific skills they need to help their children succeed.

NCFL is specifically seeking school districts that will implement the program in three elementary schools that provide K-3 education, demonstrate significant need for family literacy programming to serve an at-risk population of Hispanic and other immigrant families, provide a statement of support from the district superintendent, provide a statement of support from the local mayor or head of city council, and demonstrate capability to deliver family literacy services beginning in the fall of 2009.

Five school districts will be selected to each receive direct funding, training, technical assistance, materials, and other support from NCFL worth up to $600,000.

Interested communities/school districts should visit the NCFL Web site for complete information on this opportunity and to access the capability survey.
