The Children's Literacy Foundation (CLiF) is now accepting applications for our At-Risk Children grant. This free grant opportunity is open to social service providers, early childhood education programs, childcare centers, school-based programs such as ELL classrooms and afterschool programs, family centers, community organizations, shelters, low-income housing and other programs throughout Vermont and New Hampshire that serve low-income or at-risk infants and children up to age 12 (or a segment of that age range). 

The grant includes a professional storytelling presentation, brand new, high quality books for children to choose at the event and take home to keep, and an onsite library for the organization. Many sites also choose to include a parent literacy discussion as part of their event to help families learn the importance of sharing books with children and strategies to do so, even if the parents are not strong readers themselves.

Eligibility: See the CLiF website for details and a list of our recent grant partners. If you have recently received an At-Risk grant, your site is eligible to reapply after three years (although if your program operates multiple sites you may apply on behalf of a different site location).    

Deadline: December 6, 2017

Application:  Our application is available online: https://clif.submittable.com/submit/94785/clif-spring-2018-at-risk-children-grant-application
