Barbara Bush Family Literacy Grants in Texas
Funded by The Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy
Texas Center for the Advancement of Literacy & Learning provided technical assistance and evaluation for The Barbara Bush Foundation's Family Literacy grant program in Texas between 1996 and 2013.
Beginning in 1996, 169 grants totaling almost $4.8 million were awarded for family literacy programs in Texas. Founded by Former First Lady Barbara Bush in 1989, Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy has supported the development and expansion of family literacy programs - in settings where parents and children read and learn together - across the United States. As of 2013, the Foundation had awarded over $43 million to nearly one-thousand family literacy programs in 50 states, including the nation's capital.
