By: Will White on 4/27/2017

The At-Risk Children grant is open to social service providers, community centers, afterschool programs, refugee services organizations, shelters, low income housing programs, Head Start programs, early childhood education programs, and a wide range other groups throughout Vermont and New Hampshire that serve low-income or at-risk infants and children up to age 12 (or a portion of that age range).

The application deadline is May 15, 2017 for programming that will take place in the Fall of 2017.

The At-Risk Children grant includes a professional storytelling presentation, brand new, high quality books for children to choose and take home, and an onsite library for the organization. Many sites also choose to include a parent seminar 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.

The Summer Readers grant is open to summer programs serving children from birth to age 12 all across VT and NH.  The program works with summer camps of all kinds, nutrition programs and summer meal sites, libraries, parks and rec. programs, and school-based summer programming.  This grant is for programming which will take place during the Summer of 2017.

The Summer Readers grant includes a visit to your summer program by one of CLiF's professional presenters for a storytelling event followed by a free book giveaway for each child in attendance.  This is a fantastic way to highlight the importance of summer reading!  The deadline to apply is May 15, 2017.
