Call for PGI Grant Applications!

The Literacy Coalition is now accepting applications for 2015 PGI Grants!

Who can apply?

Established literacy groups or programs, including First Nations, that have been operating one year or more, who receive direction from a volunteer board, meet the eligibility requirements and apply before the deadline are eligible for consideration.

How much can you request?

All applications are subject to a review process and the limited funds (max. $3000 per application) that are available to distribute may be less than requested. If you are requesting funds for more than one program, please use a new form each time.

How can the funds be used?

The funds must be used for literacy related activities or learning materials for existing programs, and must be used within one year of receiving the donation. If your organization is a successful recipient of funding, a signed and dated, Statement of Expenditure, must be received by LCNB within one year of receiving the donation.

Applications that are based on providing an essential literacy service, or developing new and innovative ways to increase literacy levels in New Brunswick, are eligible:

Eligible costs include, but are not limited to, books, learning materials, special events, innovative programs, and technology.

Ineligible costs include, but are not limited to, wages, staff meals and travel, office supplies, and office furniture.

Forms are available here:

The deadline for submission of the PGI Grant applications is Thursday, Dec 31, 2015 at 5:00 pm.

Note: If your organization received PGI funding last year, a report on the activities of the grant must be submitted to LCNB before a new application is considered.
