Adult Basic Education and Integrated English Literacy and Civics Education (IELCE) Continuation

Overview

Basic Education for Adults (BEdA) programs teach workforce and academic foundational skills — reading, writing, math, digital literacy, critical thinking, employability and English language — so adults can move through college and into living-wage jobs. The programs are designed for adults with academic skills below the high school completion level or who need to improve their English language skills.

The goal is to advance students quickly and purposefully toward diplomas, certificates, and degrees. Strategies move the goal line from high school completion to graduating from college and starting careers.

Washington state providers with preliminarily approved 2022-27 Adult Basic Education and Integrated English Literacy and Civics Education (IELCE) grants are eligible to apply for this one-year of grant funding.
