BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) - The National Endowment for the Arts is offering grants to support community wide-reading programs.

U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall says the grants range from $2,500 to $20,000. He announced the funding availability Friday after reading to students at Lewisburg Elementary School.

Officials say organizations selected to participate in the NEA’s “Big Read” receive a grant, access to online training resources, as well as educational and promotional materials.

Eligible applicants include organizations such as libraries, museums, colleges and universities, art centers, historical societies, humanities councils, literary festivals, and arts organizations.
