National Book Fund Grants Now Available

Applications are now being accepted for grants from ProLiteracy’s National Book Fund (NBF), which supplies books and materials to adult basic education and literacy programs. The resources available through the NBF are from ProLiteracy’s publishing division, New Readers Press.

Applications must be postmarked no later than April 15, 2013 to be considered. Announcements to grant applicants will be made by May 30, 2013.

Programs providing direct service in the areas of basic literacy, adult basic education, English as a second language (ESL), and family literacy will be considered for support.  In addition, $20,000 in NBF funds is reserved this year for organizations providing literacy services to homeless individuals. If your organization qualifies, please be sure to provide details about this in your narrative.

In addition to New Readers Press materials, National Book Fund grants may also be in the form of ProLiteracy’s online self-paced professional development courses.

National Book Fund grant guidelines, application, order forms for New Readers Press materials, and online professional development courses are found on the ProLiteracy website.
