Adult Literacy Library Services Grant Program

New York State's Adult Literacy Library Services grants help libraries offer services which will improve adult literacy on the job and in the home. The grants encourage libraries to become community literacy leaders and to strengthen partnerships among local literacy providers. Some libraries are direct providers of literacy services; others work in partnership with agencies such as Literacy Volunteers (Literacy New York), BOCES and other community organizations.

Most New York State public libraries provide literacy and GED (General Equivalency Diploma) collections and computers to support adult learners.

Adult Literacy Library Services Grant Program applications are no longer issued in paper. For the next grant cycle, all applications must be submitted through the web-based application program.
