Grants are available for non-profit organizations to enable them to become eligible for further grant funding for programs that increase literacy in Texas. The goal of the funding is to provide services that will better enable eligible organizations to compete in the grant process and thereby receive more funding to promote literacy.

Up to five Planning Grants of $5,000 will be awarded to Texas organizations to support a 9-month planning and development process (from June 2012 through February 2013), intended to enable an organization to more effectively compete in 2013 for a 2013-2014 First Lady's Family Literacy Initiative for Texas Program Implementation Grant of up to $50,000.
