Commission AmeriCorps State Fixed Amount Grants FY 2012
Fifty AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 100 volunteers, to support focused literacy programming with students in Milwaukee area public schools to improve literacy achievement. At the end of the school year, at least 200 students will demonstrate improvement in literacy, based on pre and post data from a standardized district measure. This project will focus on the CNCS focus area of Education, specifically ED5: "Number of students with improved academic performance in literacy." The CNCS investment for this Professional Corps Fixed Amount grant program is $100,000.
