Books for Ownership Grant

This grant is anchored upon RIF’s flagship reading program which enables children to select new, age-appropriate books to take home and own and is supported by resources for parents, educators, and local literacy advocates to create a continuous focus on reading. This program relies on a simple yet fundamental truth, if you allow children choice and access, they will become more engaged readers and learners.

To apply for a grant you must be registered with the RIF Literacy Network.
