THE FY22-FY25 OAE GRANT COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED
About the Integrated English Literacy & Civics Grant Competition
The Technical College System of Georgia’s (TCSG) Office of Adult Education (OAE) recently held an adult education grant competition for eligible organizations interested in offering Integrated English Literacy & Civics Education (IELCE) services, funded under Section 243 of the Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act. Due to the limited number of eligible and qualified applicants it received during that competition, OAE needs additional IELCE providers that can serve students in the Local Workforce Development Areas (LWDAs) and counties noted below. For a map of LWDAs by zip code, please click here.
Please note that this grant competition is for eligible organizations to offer Integrated English Literacy & Civics Education services only. OAE is not currently seeking applications from eligible organizations wishing to offer adult basic or secondary education or corrections education.
