The Children’s Literacy Foundation (CLiF) is now accepting applications for our At-Risk Children grant. The 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 subset of that age range). The application deadline is May 4, 2016.
The grant includes a professional storytelling presentation, brand new, high quality books for children to choose and take home, and an onsite library of new books 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.
