Community Literacy Development Fund (CLDF)
The Community Literacy Development Fund (CLDF) provides financial assistance to community organizations to develop and deliver local programs that will increase literacy skills and raise awareness of the importance of literacy. The CLDF is administered regionally, through each of the ECE Service Centres. The CLDF promotes literacy development for adults in the Northwest Territories, including youth (16 – 25), working age adults, parents and seniors (60 and older). It supports literacy development in all of the eleven NWT official languages, with an emphasis on Aboriginal languages. Special priority will be given to youth and adults developing emergent literacy skills and to Income Support clients.
