The Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy (SRCL) grant is a federal grant aimed at improving the reading and writing skills of students. These flow-through funds will directly support Local Education Agencies (LEAs) in their literacy efforts to benefit children from birth through twelfth grade. Louisiana is one of only six states selected to benefit from the federal grant.

Louisiana’s SRCL grant will be implemented in two cohorts. The first cohort, which includes 17 LEAs, began the program in April 2012. A second cohort began the program in June 2013. LEAs are awarded funds based on the strength of their proposed literacy plans.
