American Dream Literacy Initiative Grants
Deadline: December 14, 2018.
The American Library Association (ALA) and Dollar General Literacy Foundation invite public libraries to apply for grants of $10,000 to expand services for adult English language learners or adults in need of basic education and workforce development. Up to 16 grants will be awarded.
Public libraries are eligible if they serve adult English language learners and are located within 20 miles of a Dollar General Store, distribution center or corporate office. Visit the Dollar General Store Locator. The grants allow libraries to augment their print and digital English as a second language (ESL) collections; increase computer access and training; provide job training; hold English language learning (ELL), general educational development (GED) and citizenship classes; and raise the visibility of services for immigrant populations.
