ProLiteracy Statistical Report from 2012-2013

A new survey of ProLiteracy adult literacy and basic education member organizations finds that federal funding for these programs continues to shrink—falling 1 percentage point over last year and falling 10 percentage points since 2006.

Additionally, ProLiteracy programs show a general trend of receiving less public funding overall. In 2011-12, 38 percent of programs received federal and/or state funding; that figure has fallen to 31 percent in 2012-13.
