Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $15,000 to Massachusetts nonprofit organizations in eligible areas for programs that promote literacy and workforce development. Funding is intended to help vulnerable residents build the skills needed to reach their educational and employment goals, including ESOL, ABE and GED programs, as well as family literacy and early literacy programs. Eligible applicants must benefit the community of New Bedford.

Proposals will be considered from organizations seeking to:

  • Mitigate barriers to learning such as cultural and language differences, transportation and childcare issues, and fragmentation of available services.
  • Advocate for public policy changes that increase provider capacity, create employer incentives to offer workplace literacy programs, and increases state and local funding.
  • Advocate for greater private and employer investment in worker education.
  • Support programs integrating early literacy programming for children birth to three years old with ABE/ESOL and parenting courses.
  • Protect the cultural context and bonds of a community by preserving and supporting neighborhood-based programs providing access to literacy and ABE/ESOL classes.
  • Address gaps in programming and provider services. Encourage programming for all stages of adult learning, from adult basic education to preparation for successful enrollment in post-secondary education and training.
  • Support capacity building of programs that meet one or more of the objectives listed above.
