This NDA provides funding for the Montgomery Coalition for Adult English Literacy (MCAEL). MCAEL's mission is to strengthen the Countywide adult English literacy providers' network with resources, training, collaborations, and advocacy to support a thriving community and an effective workforce. Funding for MCAEL supports grants to approximately 20 community organizations for 27 programs that provide adult English literacy classes. Additionally, MCAEL receives operating funding to provide technical assistance, coordination of new program initiatives, training, and networking opportunities to over 65 community organizations that improve program quality and coordination and provide critical information for the community to educate and engage them about the need for and benefits from adult English literacy classes. The County's contribution is implemented by a contract between the Department of Public Libraries and MCAEL.
