This grant provides $500 to support literacy goals. Successful applicants will explain in their proposal how they will use grant components to stimulate interest and enthusiasm for literacy activities and how this addresses COVID-19 changes to your program or your participants.


Any organization that has been a CLiF partner in the last five years is eligible to apply, including schools, libraries, summer program locations, preschools, and summer food distribution locations.

Applicants must be able to impact at least 30 kids from birth to age 12 (or sixth grade).

Grant applications are due June 15; CLiF will award grants on a rolling basis. Funds must be used and feedback submitted by September 1, 2021. There is potential for this grant to reopen next winter as well, so this funding is ideally to support summer sites needing additional funds.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
