Deadline: January 29, 2021
The American Library Association (ALA) and Dollar General Literacy Foundation invite public libraries to apply for grants of $5,000 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 ESL collections; increase computer/internet access and training; provide job training; hold ELL, GED and citizenship classes; implement virtual or in-person programs for adult literacy learners and raise the visibility of services for immigrant populations.
