This guide is designed to help providers of adult literacy programs in Colorado identify sources of financial support for their programs. The first half of the guide is an annotated listing of 59 funding resources (including philanthropic foundations, trusts, and corporations/corporate programs) for adult literacy programs. Each annotation contains the address and phone number of the organization, a contact person, and a brief summary that may describe some or all of the following: areas of funding, types of projects/client groups in which the organization is especially interested, geographic or other restrictions, sizes/numbers of grants available, and application requirements. Presented next is a list of 15 key publications containing current information on source of funding for literacy programs. The third section describes the programs funded under various titles of the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA), presents basic information on JTPA funding procedures and cycles, and lists the addresses of Colorado's nine JTPA service delivery areas. Concluding the guide are lists of tips for successful grant writing and tips to enhance the development of grant proposals. (MN)
