The goal of the Barbara Bush Foundation’s National Grant Program is to develop or expand family literacy efforts nationwide and to support the development of literacy programs that build families of readers. Funded programs must include reading instruction for parents or primary caregivers; literacy or preliteracy instruction for children; and intergenerational activities in which the parents or primary caregivers and children come together to learn and read. Programs also can include additional components, such as parent support groups, parent involvement, home visits, job training, etc. Approximately $650,000 is awarded each year; no grant request should exceed $65,000.
