There is a small Department of Education grant program entitled
Improving Literacy Through School Libraries.
As with all federal education programs, our friends in Washington need to know that funding of particular programs is important. This competitive grant allocates funding to improve school library media centers in low-income communities. If you would like to add your voice to those of us asking for the continuance of the program, please contact Irene Harwarth, by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (202) 401-3751
