Hope Network Foundation and Michigan Department of Education Secure Department of Education Grant

The McAllister & Quinn nonprofit team recently assisted Hope Network Foundation in partnership with the Michigan Department of Education, in securing a $16 million Department of Education Comprehensive Literacy State Development Program Grant.

The proposed literacy state development program will accomplish several goals and objectives: 1) improve student outcomes for all students; 2) leverage several partners and state initiatives already in place including the MDE TA Center, Great Start Collaboratives and Too Small to Fail, Michigan Education Corps, Michigan Libraries and Michigan Assessment Consortium to benefit Local Education Agencies located within Qualified Opportunity Zones; and 3) ensure evidence-based practices which are aligned to state initiatives to support literacy learning are implemented with fidelity. The project will serve children ages birth through grade 12.
