Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Indiana public, charter, and accredited non-public elementary schools to improve literacy for first and second-grade students. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to provide teacher training to enhance students' reading skills and help schools acquire the necessary resources to achieve success.

Purpose of the Grant

The Indiana Literacy Early Intervention Grant (EIG) was first implemented in the 1997-98 school year as a means of improving the reading skills of young students at risk for reading failure. The grant funds are to be used to better equip teachers to meet the needs of all students, to enhance student engagement, and to increase student literacy achievement. 

The Early Intervention Grant:

  • Assists schools in acquiring resources and training needed to enhance skills in the five components of reading (phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension) for first and second grade.
  • Provides funding for training specific to the core reading program, media center resources, reading intervention, and diagnostic tools. The professional development must directly impact a teacher’s ability to administer the program with fidelity and address student needs.

Early Intervention Grant funds may be used to support:

  • Specific training aligned with an evidence-based core reading program, grounded in the five components of reading (phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension).
  • Resources to support a student intervention program (e.g. leveled books).
  • Evidence-based reading intervention program, focused on the five components of reading, and corresponding training to support the implementation.
  • A diagnostic tool that aligns with evidence-based core reading program and the corresponding training to support implementation. (e.g. dyslexia programs)
