Several organizations will provide $150,000 in grants to nonprofits that support literacy in low-income neighborhoods in Greater Cincinnati. The Greater Cincinnati Foundation, Duke Energy Foundation, WCPO and the Scripps Howard Foundation will award $100,000 to a nonprofit that helps children develop literacy skills through pre-K. A grant of $50,000 will be given to a finalist. The program must be ongoing, serve low-income families and foster relationships with parents. The foundations will invite 10 nonprofits to complete a full application on Jan. 31 after reviewing letters. Those applications will be due Feb. 21, and five semi-finalists will be announced on March 13. Site visits will take place the week of March 19. Winners will be announced during the 65th Annual Scripps Howard Awards Show on April 19 at Memorial Hall.
