Reach Out and Read Illinois is embarking on a statewide project funded by Illinois Department of Public Health to deepen the impact of ROR programs across the state.

Reach Out and Read Illinois will provide mini grants of up to $5,000 to new clinic sites looking to implement the program over the next two years. These mini-grant funds will support book costs and will be provided directly into the site’s All About Books or Scholastic accounts. To apply for this grant, clinics should:

    • Complete the ROR training

Clinics will be accepted on a rolling basis and will be notified within 4 weeks of their submitted application. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Kristina Rogers (
