The National Center for Family Literacy (NCFL) is accepting grant applications for its new nationwide initiative: Toyota Family Learning. NCFL will award five (5) organizations in different cities a three-year, $175,000 grant, as well as a wide range of NCFL training and communications support, to implement services that engage families in learning together, mentoring other families in learning together, and family service learning projects. Eligible applicants include schools (traditional public and charter), and other nonprofit community based organizations, libraries and other nonprofit organizations providing services to families. NCFL is requesting applications that will adapt existing family engagement in education programs to include the implementation of family mentoring and service learning components consisting of:

• Parent and Child Together (PACT) Time® — activities which are defined in federal legislation as interactive literacy activities between parents and children;

• Parent Time — activities which are defined in federal legislation as training for parents regarding how to be the primary teacher for their children and full partners in the education of their children;

• Families mentoring other families to learn together and participate — via online and offline activities; and

• Family service learning — through projects and the sharing of those projects, activities, and experiences on the Toyota Family Learning community website.

Applications are due June 24, 2013. Need help with a grant application? Contact Transform Consulting Group today!
