The grant opportunity that I posted about on January 31st (see below) has been postponed, per an announcement from the Oregon Department of Education. If I get word of the new grant guidelines and application deadline, I'll post about it.

Good afternoon,

At the end of January, ODE announced a Strategic Initiative grant: American Indian/Alaskan Native Closing the Achievement Gap Grant. After receiving feedback and questions from stakeholders in the field, the AINA Closing the Achievement Gap grant is being revised. A group of stakeholders will be convened to provide feedback and the American Indian/Alaskan Native Closing Achievement Gap RFP will be re-released no later than mid-March, 2014. Once it is re-released, applicants will be provided a minimum of six weeks to apply and funding will be awarded in May.

Please direct questions to April Campbell, Indian Education Specialist, at 503-947-5810 or april.campbell at state.or.us<mailto:april.campbell at state.or.us>.

FYI,
Jen

Oregon Early Literacy Grant
The Oregon Early Literacy Grant<http://earlylearningcouncil.files.wordpress.com/2014/01/kindergarten_partnershipinnovation_rfa_2014.pdf> is part of House Bill 3232, Strategic Initiatives for Student Success.  Oregon's Early Learning Council (ELC) is seeking applications for Early Literacy Grant funds for the purpose of strengthening early literacy among children ages 0-6.  The goals of this grant program are to  improve children's kindergarten readiness and, ultimately, third grade reading proficiency.  The ELC is looking for early literacy partnerships that will build the capacity of adults to engage in high quality reading experiences with children, expand reading opportunities for children, increase the frequency with which children are read to in the home, and expand access to books, libraries, and/or materials and curriculum that promote early literacy.  The ELC anticipates awarding approximately twenty-five grants to support early literacy through the Oregon Early Reading Program.

Early Learning Hubs, providers of early childhood services, nonprofit organizations, libraries, school districts and public schools or a collaboration thereof are eligible to submit proposals.  Early Learning Hubs may apply for up to $100,000. All other applicants may apply for up to $50,000.

Please visit the following link to view the Request for Applications: http://oregonearlylearning.com/2014/01/30/requests-for-application/
