Students & Parents In Cooperative Education (SPICE) Family Literacy Program, A Proud Recipient of a Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy Grant
BARBARA BUSH FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES CONTINUED SUPPORT FOR FAMILY LITERACY EFFORTS IN MAINE
~ First Family Literacy Scholarships Announced to Benefit Maine Students ~
Biddeford, ME– Former First Lady Barbara Bush announced today awards totaling $310,000 to 14 communities in Maine to support her passion for parents and children reading and learning together. The grants are awarded through the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy which funds local programs focused on reading, writing and language comprehension.
“The ability to read, write and comprehend empowers people to create brighter and more prosperous futures for themselves, their families and their communities,” said Mrs. Bush. “The Foundation thinks it is important this year in hard times to volunteer more, give more money, and use our resources to support family literacy programs.”
The grantees were honored at a ceremony held at the George and Barbara Bush Center at the University of New England in Biddeford, Maine. Representatives from each program accepted their grant awards from Mrs. Bush and Doro Bush Koch, co-chair of the Barbara Bush Foundation. They were joined by U.S. Senator Susan Collins, First Lady Ann LePage and Danielle Ripich, President of the University of New England.
Applications were submitted by libraries, adult education programs, and public schools across the state-seven family literacy programs were selected to receive $25,000 each. An additional two planning grants ($5,000 each) will help communities develop the partnerships and resources needed to implement a new family literacy program.
Five “Lighthouse Model Programs” ($25,000 each) have also been awarded to well-established, model family literacy programs with significant outreach activities to support the promotion and expansion of services in the state. Awardees are selected based on their ability to demonstrate experience and success in providing family literacy programming, the creativity of their outreach activities, and the diversity of their partnerships and target audiences.
