A Guide to Funding Sources for Family Literacy.
This guide provides help in locating and securing funds for family literacy programs and illustrates how family literacy programs may be organized and implemented by explaining important legislation and presenting examples of collaborative family literacy efforts that use a variety of resources. The booklet is organized in four parts. Part I describes the major sources of funding for family literacy programs, including federal, state, and local funds and services, as well as support from private foundations and corporations. Part II presents examples of funding packages, showing how different family literacy programs draw upon different funding sources. Suggestions for maintaining positive relationships with funders are also presented. Part III gives suggestions for writing funding proposals. A description of the types of information requested in proposals is presented, with examples of funding budgets. A checklist is provided for evaluating proposals before submitting them to funders. Part IV provides additional information about funding family literacy programs. Four resource books, which expand upon the information presented in this guide, are cited, and resource centers with information on grants are noted. (KC)
