Putting Florida’s Adult Learners First: Adult Education & Family Literacy Act 2021-2023 Grant Competition


The 2020-2021 Adult Education and Family Literacy Grant Program information have been moved to the Archives.

The vision of Florida’s adult education system is to hold learners at the center and deliver outcomes that promote full participation in the workforce, result in high-quality credentials of value and close equity and achievement gaps. The work of transforming Florida’s adult education system is now guided by the following strategic priorities:

  • Priority 1: Promote regional partnerships to ensure comprehensive approaches that result in improved learner outcomes;
  • Priority 2: Expand the state’s talent pipeline through attainment of credentials of value and acquisition of postsecondary certifications, industry-recognized credentials and degrees;
  • Priority 3: Ensure all learners receive high quality instruction that prioritizes measurable labor market needs and outcomes while working to eliminate equity and achievement gaps in the community; and
  • Priority 4: Incent, measure, and support enhanced program effectiveness. 

FDOE welcomes eligible applicants interested in offering innovative programming and supporting hundreds of thousands of individuals both inside and outside of Florida’s WIOA workforce system to apply. For grant program summary information, check out the announcement flyer (PDF).
