2021-2022 Read Across America Grant
Grant criteria: Each year, KEA budgets funds to support Read Across America events sponsored by KEA districts and KEA locals. Although March 2 of each year is traditionally designated as "Read Across America Day,” events can occur on any date. The primary purpose of the Read Across America program is to promote literacy. In addition, KEA will also judge grant requests based on the following criteria: the degree to which the activity encourages participation by multiple categories (Active, Retired and Student) of KEA membership, the number of children and students that are expected to participate, the expected level of publicity and community outreach, development of strong KEA locals, and other relevant criteria that may be established and considered by the grant committee.
Application process: Applications must be submitted on this electronic form. Incomplete forms may not be considered. All grant applications must be received by KEA on or before September 15, 2021. Funding decisions will be made by KEA's Read Across America Committee on or before October 15, 2021. You will be notified of the decisions. The maximum grant amount is $500.00. Each district or local may only receive one grant per year.
