Under the Reading First program, ED awards Targeted Assistance Grants to State Educational Agencies that demonstrate an increase in student achievement in schools and districts participating in the Reading First program. The data that states must submit to demonstrate an increase in student achievement are the same data that states must submit in their annual performance reports for their Reading First State grants. ED will permit states to apply for Targeted Assistance Grants by submitting their annual Reading First performance reports. No separate application is required.
