U.S. Department of Education: Seeking Applications for Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy Program

Deadline: 17 July 2017

The U.S. Department of Education is seeking applications for its Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy Program.

The Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy (SRCL) Program awards competitive grants to advance literacy skills, including preliteracy skills, reading, and writing, for children from birth through grade 12, with an emphasis on disadvantaged children, including children living in poverty, English learners, and children with disabilities.

Program Priorities

1. Absolute Priority

  • Interventions and Practices Supported by Moderate or Strong Evidence: Under this priority, a State educational agency (SEA) must ensure that evidence plays a central role in the SRCL subgrants. Specifically, in its high-quality plan, an SEA must assure that
    • it will use an independent peer review process to prioritize awards to eligible subgrantees that propose highquality comprehensive literacy instruction programs that are supported by moderate evidence or strong evidence, where evidence is applicable and available, and
    • the comprehensive literacy instruction program proposed by eligible subgrantees will align with the State’s comprehensive literacy plan as well as local needs.

2. Competitive Preference Priorities:

  • Serving Disadvantaged Children: Under this priority, an SEA must describe in its application a high-quality plan to award subgrants that will serve the greatest numbers or percentages of disadvantaged children, including children living in poverty, English learners, and children with disabilities.
  • Alignment within a Birth through Fifth Grade Continuum: Under this priority, an SEA must describe in its application a high-quality plan to align, through a progression of approaches appropriate for each age group, early language and literacy projects supported by this grant that serve children from birth to age five with programs and systems that serve students in kindergarten through grade five to improve school readiness and transitions for children across this continuum.
