Comprehensive Literacy Grant
“A student is not a level, and a book is not a level either. A book has descriptors and factors that may make it difficult— but what makes it difficult for one student is not what makes it difficult for another student.”
- Dr. Adria Klein, Author of EDGE, Professor Emerita of Education, California State University, San Bernardino
What is the Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy Grant (SRCL)?
Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy Grants are discretionary grants awarded for a project and budget period of 3 years. States receiving this grant must sub grant at least 95% of those funds to local education agencies or non-profit providers of early childhood education.
If you are an educator in any of the following states, your district is eligible to apply to become a sub grantee.
