To support project grants of up to $8,000 for locally-initiated community programs on topics related to American history and culture; traveling exhibitions and related programming associated with the national Museum on Main Street; a college-level course focused on Americans' relationships to their landscapes; and a family reading program called My United States.

Finally, twenty current Motheread/Fatheread instructors will be trained in the new My United States curriculum for use with immigrant populations.
