Program Description

  Montgomery Coalition for Adult English Literacy

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 classes. Additionally, MCAEL receives operating funding to fully support the network by: providing technical assistance, coordinating new program initiatives, and developing training and networking opportunities for over 60 community organizations. MCAEL convenes the ESOL community, connects with businesses and other organizations, and leverages funding to improve program quality and coordination. MCAEL also provides critical information for the community to educate and engage them about the need for and benefits from adult English classes. The County's contribution is implemented by a contract between the Department of Public Libraries and MCAEL.
