Note: The due date for the request for applications has passed. This page is for reference and administration of funding.
Literacy Lead Agencies will build expertise in the priorities identified in the State Literacy Plan and implement the strategies as a multi-year small-scale pilot with local districts. These strategies must align with state guidance and policies, be evidence-based, and support the literacy needs of economically disadvantaged and high-needs students. Grantees will support teachers in their region to improve comprehensive literacy instruction with a focus on statewide literacy priorities for each age and grade span.
