Call for Proposals for Saskatchewan Community Literacy Fund 2018-19

Released on April 26, 2018

The Ministry of Education is now accepting proposals for the 2018-19 Saskatchewan Community Literacy Fund (SCLF).  The SCLF provides funding for Saskatchewan-based not-for-profit organizations to develop and deliver new family and community literacy projects that contribute to enhanced community and family literacy.  Qualified projects may receive up to $50,000 in funding.

“These funds allow communities to respond to identified family or community literacy challenges in our province,” Deputy Premier and Education Minister Gordon Wyant said.  “They support community-based initiatives targeted at improving literacy rates and offering everyone the opportunity to get an education, gain skills and participate in the Saskatchewan economy.”

The Government of Saskatchewan will provide up to $400,000 for the Saskatchewan Community Literacy Fund in 2018-19.

Projects that receive funding may be between three months and one year in length.  Preference for funding will be given to projects that are not available elsewhere in the community and focus on the literacy needs of Indigenous and/or Métis people, newcomers, people with intellectual and/or physical challenges, young and/or single parents, youth, low income families, or rural communities.

The following types of registered, not-for-profit, organizations are eligible:

  • literacy organizations and public libraries;
  • First Nation communities, bands, Tribal Councils and organizations;
  • Métis communities and organizations;
  • early learning and child care centres;
  • immigrant-serving agencies and cultural organizations;
  • school divisions;
  • First Nations education authorities; and
  • post-secondary institutions, including regional colleges.
Applicants are required to submit the complete application package by email to the Saskatchewan Literacy Network at saskliteracy@saskliteracy.ca by Thursday, May 24, 2018.  All proposals received by the deadline will be reviewed by a selection committee to select those that most closely meet the criteria to receive SCLF funding.

The 2018-19 SCLF guidelines and application forms are available at www.saskatchewan.ca/residents/education-and-learning/literacy-in-saskatchewan.
