Grants to Indiana public, charter, and accredited nonpublic elementary schools to improve literacy for first and second-grade students. Funding is intended to provide teacher training to enhance students' reading skills and help schools acquire the necessary resources to achieve success. Schools may receive funds if their application focuses on early intervention.

Indiana Literacy Early Intervention Grant (EIG) funds are to be used to better equip teachers to meet the needs of students, to enhance student engagement, and to increase student literacy achievement.

Schools must provide information on how they plan to use EIG funds. Funds may be used to support:

  • Specific training aligned with an evidence-based core reading program, grounded in the five components of reading (phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension). 
  • Resources to support a student intervention program (e.g., leveled books). 
  • Evidence-based reading intervention program, focused on the five components of reading, and corresponding training to support the implementation.
  • A diagnostic tool that aligns with evidence-based core reading program and the corresponding training to support implementation (e.g., dyslexia programs).
