State Grants

AEFLA seeks to create a partnership between states, the Federal government, and local adult education providers to help adults get the basic skills they need including reading, writing, math, English language proficiency, and problem-solving to be productive workers, family members, and citizens.

Upon submission of an approved Unified or Combined State Plan, the Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education (OCTAE) at the U. S. Department of Education provides grants to states to fund local programs of adult education and literacy services. These services include adult education, literacy, English language acquisition, workplace literacy services, family literacy services, integrated education and training, and integrated English literacy and civics education programs. Participation in these programs is limited to adults and out-of-school youths age 16 and older. The amount each state receives is based on a formula established by Congress.

Awards are made to state eligible agencies that under state law are solely responsible for administering or supervising statewide policy for adult education and literacy, including such entities as SEAs, postsecondary agencies, or workforce agencies. The Department provides grants to these state eligible agencies, which, in turn, fund local providers.
