6.    From Barry Shaffer:     I just found out about two grant opportunities that you may want to consider.  See the NCFL announcement. 
If your program applies, please let me know and I would be happy to write a supportive letter from the ABE office.  I will not be endorsing programs that are outside of our state-funded ABE system. I think programs within our network of consortia have a “leg-up” on the competition due to your experience with accountability procedures and a history of positive outcome performance.

       "
If any staff have ideas how this grant opportunity could work in your region, please contact your coordinator with your ideas!"  Pat

7.    Literacy Minnesota and the Minnesota Community Education Association (MCEA) are hosting their second annual summer conference focused on ABE issues.  The  ABE Statewide Summer Institute will held on the gorgeous St. John's University Campus in Collegeville August 8, 9, 10.
