Apply for grants to help families make the dream of college come true

Thanks to funding from MetLife Foundation, the National Center for Family Literacy is creating 10 grants of up to $25,000 each to help educational and community organizations provide support for Latino and other families to earn college degrees. The grants will expand the reach of the Family Literacy – Community College Partnership Initiative to communities and programs across the country.

The funding will help programs create innovative and practical uses of the initiative’s online resources to maximize their success while learning from exemplary local efforts that support educational transitions.
