This is an excerpt from a statement by The National Center For Family Literacy:
Today the National Center for Family Literacy (NCFL) announced a new six-year initiative, Toyota Family Learning. One major component of the initiative also kicks off today: NCFL is now accepting grant applications to further family learning beyond the classroom and into homes and communities. Applications are being accepted now through June 24 at Toyota Family Learning.
This year, five organizations will be awarded a three-year, $175,000 grant, in addition to a wide range of NCFL training and communication support, learning items, and materials. Grantees will engage vulnerable families in learning together and participating in family mentor and service learning activities. Schools, libraries, and community-based organizations that provide services to families are eligible to apply.
