Course Description

The Early Language and Literacy Mini-Grant Program is a competitive grant system designed to invest in partnerships across communities to target birth to age 8 language and literacy development needs.  This session will provide an overview of the grant system, explain the eligibility requirements for the grant, and give specific guidance for successfully completing a grant application.  Some partnerships that would be supported by these funds might include childcare centers, Pre-Ks, primary grades of elementary schools, local service agencies, and local nonprofits.  Grants for this program will be awarded in amounts ranging from $5,000 to $20,000 for projects that are aligned to one of the four pillars of the Get Georgia Reading Campaign.


The Get Georgia Reading Campaign identifies four pillars that are critical to the development of strong language and literacy skills.  The Four Pillars are Language Nutrition, Access, Positive Learning Climate, and Teacher Preparation and Effectiveness.  Each project should directly align to one of these four pillars.  Additionally, Six Keys to Access have also been identified, and addressing one of more of these keys would strengthen grant applications.  The Six Keys to Access are awareness, affordability, accessibility, availability, accommodation, and acceptability.  The website for the Get Georgia Reading Campaign can provide more information on the common agenda for birth to age 8 literacy development, current partnerships throughout the state, and activities that may support your project.  For more information on these elements and on the Get Georgia Reading in general, visit their website at www.getgeorgiareading.org.
