MCAEL FY12 Grants for Adult English Literacy

The Montgomery Coalition for Adult English Literacy announces the award of more than $500,000 in grants to support adult English literacy programs across Montgomery County.  Funding for the grants is provided in partnership with the Montgomery County Government, thanks to the generous support of County Executive Leggett and members of the Montgomery County Council.  Additionally in FY2012, MCAEL leveraged funds provided by the Verizon Foundation. Resources for books and others supplies, provided by Verizon, were added to the funding available for distribution. MCAEL thanks the Verizon Foundation and Montgomery County Government for supporting literacy.

The objective of MCAEL’s grants program is to increase the availability of adult English literacy services offered to diverse populations, and to improve the quality of those services.For more information, please read our press release or click here to view a list of grants awarded.

"Without MCAEL, we’d be duplicating efforts and maybe not doing [our work] very well.  I’m so impressed by the people of all ages and backgrounds who are involved.  We all have a commitment to help people learn English, so they can function in the community and within families."
