Educational Resources (ER) 2014-2015

Appropriation Level: $250,000

Improved literacy, including English language proficiency, for many is the essential first step toward the acquisition of a high school diploma, or equivalent and ultimately employment. As adult learners improve their literacy, they increase their employability and enhance their ability to support themselves and their families. The Educational Resources (ER) program is designed to assist social services districts in addressing the educational needs of their TANF eligible population and enable them to improve their literacy skills and become productive and successful in the workplace, home, and community.

Providers are reimbursed as participants:

  • Advance one ABE, ASE, ESL, or NRS level as determined by pre-and post-testing
  • Obtain a high school equivalency diploma or a secondary school diploma through an external diploma program
  • Complete a career plan and enter unsubsidized employment for at least 30 days
  • Complete a career plan and retain employment for at least 90 days

A portion of the SFY 2014-15 $250,000 appropriation is being used to support the new round of Educational Resources contracts that began 9/1/15.
