*Ezra Jack Keats Foundation Accepting Minigrant Applications*

Established by children's book author and illustrator Ezra Jack Keats, the
Ezra Jack Keats Foundation is accepting applications from* public schools
and public libraries* anywhere in the United States and its territories for
program or event mini-grants of up to $500.

The mini-grants program is intended to support projects that foster
creative expression, collaboration, and interaction with a diverse
community. The funding program provides an opportunity for educators, whose
efforts are often inadequately funded or recognized, to create special
activities outside the standard curriculum and make time to encourage their
students.

Projects funded in the past include murals, pen pal groups, quilts, theater
productions, newspapers and other publications, intergenerational
activities, and programs that bring disparate communities together.

Public schools and public libraries are eligible to apply. Preschool head
start programs also are eligible. Only public organizations are eligible;
private and parochial schools should not apply. Charter schools also are
ineligible. Applicants must be located in the U.S. or its commonwealths or
territories, including Puerto Rico and Guam. Only one application from each
library or school will be considered.

Complete program guidelines, a video tutorial for applicants, and the
application form are available at the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation Web site.
