Early Learning Fund

Published on AidPage by IDILOGIC on Jun 24, 2005

Who can benefit...

The purpose of this grant program is to enable Local Councils to increase, support, expand, and better coordinate early learning opportunities for children and familes through local community organizations. These funds can be used to benefit young children from birth up to the age of mandatory school attendance in their State. To meet the program goal to improve the learning readiness of young children, grant awards will be made to Local Councils that can best assess their community needs and create a plan to facilitate the development of community-based systems and collaborative service models, provide continuity of services for young children, and help parents and other caregivers promote early learning. Projects must address "enhancing early childhood literacy" and two or more of the other seven activities specified in the Act.

About this section:

This section lists the ultimate beneficiaries of a program, the criteria they must satisfy and who specifically is not eligible. The applicant and beneficiary will generally be the same for programs that provide assistance directly from a Federal agency. However, financial assistance that passes through State or local governments will have different applicants and beneficiaries since the assistance is transmitted to private sector beneficiaries who are not obligated to request or apply for the assistance.
