New $500K Grants for Family Engagement Programs that Support Early Childhood Education

by | Sep 10, 2013


Family Engagement PhotoThe W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) has announced a new $5 million grant program to identify and expand promising family engagement efforts that support early childhood educational success from birth to 8 years old. Organizations that have developed effective family engagement models that address obstacles faced by low-income families are encouraged to send initial submissions for possible funding of up to $500,000 for one to three years. The Foundation seeks to support and expand on-the-ground family engagement efforts that include program design and implementation, service delivery and/or policy development and implementation. Proposals that outline effective teaching strategies, work to align early childhood systems in their communities and focus on building family economic security as they connect to strong family engagement in education are strongly encouraged.

Public entities and nonprofit organizations are eligible. Applications are due by September 23, 2013. If selected, applicants will be asked to provide a full proposal in October 2013, and will receive guidelines upon selection. Selected grantees will be notified of their awards in December 2013.
