Congregations for Children is accepting applications for supplementary funding for NC Conference churches that will remain as members of the NC Conference after July 1, 2023, that are planning to host summer literacy programs for elementary school-aged children.
Aligned with our primary focus on kindergarten through third-grade literacy, we invite applications that demonstrate a focus on remediation and reinforcement of reading and writing skills, particularly for low-income children in your community. While the name of the summer program does not need to include “reading” or “literacy,” the successful applicant will demonstrate that a significant percentage of the children’s time will be devoted to advancing literacy skills.
Applicants will submit the following information online, which will be evaluated by a grant review team from the NC Conference Congregations for Children Committee. The application deadline is May 31, 2023, and final awards will be communicated to applicants by June 9, 2023.
