Apply for a Read Across New Jersey literacy grant

NJEA’s Read Across New Jersey (RANJ) program has created a new $500 grant empowering local associations to engage with their communities around literacy.

Local presidents and PRIDE chairs are encouraged to think outside of the box to lift literacy in their communities. Local associations that share a community are encouraged to work collaboratively, but each local must submit its own grant application.

An RANJ grant may be used for books and expenses such as food or costs related to engaging members, students, families and communities, but may not be used for promotional items.

Using the PRIDE portallocal presidents and PRIDE chairs may submit their grant application until Jan. 15.
