A few things to be aware of with IAL grants:

1.       Only High Need* LEA’s can apply. The district or local education
agency (LEA) must apply, not schools.

2.       Estimated Average Size of Awards to LEAs and Consortia of
LEAs: $500,000. Estimated Number of Awards to LEAs and Consortia of LEAs
[nationally]: 30.



* High-need local educational agency (High-need LEA) means—

(1) Except for LEAs referenced in paragraph (2), an LEA in which *at least* *20
percent* [2

of
the students aged 5-17 in the school attendance area of the LEA are from
families with incomes below the poverty line, based on data from the U.S.
Census Bureau's Small Area Income and Poverty Estimates for school
districts for the most recent income year (Census list).

(2) For an LEA that is not included on the Census list, such as a charter
school LEA, an LEA for which the State educational agency (SEA) determines,
consistent with the manner described under section 1124(c) of the ESEA, as
amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, in which the SEA
determines an LEA's eligibility for Title I allocations, that *20 percent*
of the students aged 5-17 in the LEA are from families with incomes below
the poverty line. (IAL NFP.

*Purpose of Program:* The IAL program supports high-quality programs
designed to develop and improve literacy skills for children and students
from birth through 12th grade in *high-need local educational agencies
(high-need LEAs)*and schools. The U.S. Department of Education (Department)
intends to promote innovative literacy programs that support the
development of literacy skills in low-income communities, including
programs that (1) develop and enhance effective school library programs,
which may include providing professional development for school librarians,
books, and up-to-date materials to high-need schools; (2) provide early
literacy services, including pediatric literacy programs through which,
during well-child visits, medical providers trained in research-based
methods of early language and literacy promotion provide developmentally
appropriate books and recommendations to parents to encourage them to read
aloud to their children starting in infancy; and (3) provide high-quality
books on a regular basis to children and adolescents from low-income
communities to increase reading motivation, performance, and frequency. The
IAL program supports the implementation of high-quality plans for childhood
literacy activities and book distribution efforts that demonstrate a
rationale.

In accordance with the Senate report accompanying the Consolidated
Appropriations Act, 2018, S. Rep. No. 115-150, at 163 (2017), the
Department will reserve no less than 50 percent of funds under the IAL
program for grants to develop and enhance effective school library
programs, which may include providing professional development to
librarians in high-need schools or books and other up-to-date library
materials to such schools. Further, the Department will ensure that grants
are distributed among eligible entities that will serve geographically
diverse areas, including rural areas.
