Ohio has received a $35 million Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy Grant from the U.S. Department of Education to build on ongoing work to improve the language and literacy development of Ohio’s children.
 
The Department will distribute approximately 95 percent of the $35 million award directly to local schools or early childhood providers to help them improve literacy outcomes for children from birth through grade 12. The three-year grant will focus on serving students living in poverty, students with disabilities, English learners and students identified as having a reading disability.
