Grants to build 26TEN communities opens on Monday 24 Sep and closed on Friday 26 Oct at 5pm.
These grants fund people to work together in a coordinated way to lift literacy and numeracy.
The goal is to build a community where:
- everyone knows about 26TEN
- literacy and numeracy are talked about openly and seen as valuable skills that can be learned or improved
- people can easily tap into programs and services to help them improve their literacy and numeracy
- information is presented in ways that community members can readily understand.
Any Tasmanian community, geographic or connected in other ways, with a strong, large network that has a passion for building the literacy and numeracy skills of their community is eligible to apply. Our publication Becoming a 26TEN Community is a useful guide to the steps a community needs to take.
