Book Grants available from First Book–Portland

Starting January 4, 2010, First Book-Portland, OR is accepting grant applications from local nonprofit organizations serving children in need. Teachers and directors of local preschools, child care centers, after-school programs, tutoring and mentoring programs are encouraged to apply for grants to purchase new books to give to the children in their programs. To be eligible to receive a First Book grant, organizations are required to: incorporate reading as part of their program activities, serve children and families from low-income households, provide multiple distributions (between six and twelve) to each child in the program, support the child's ongoing education outside of the school classroom setting, and serve children in Multnomah, Clackamas and Washington counties. The First Book-Portland, OR Advisory Board gives priority to organizations that primarily serve children ages 0-5. Applications are due by Friday, January 29, 2010.
