Funding Restored For Adult Literacy Courses in Brooklyn

BROOKLYN (Hamodia staff) -

Funding for adult literacy classes in Boro Park and Flatbush was restored after cuts ended the 20-year program, Councilman David Greenfield announced on Tuesday.

Brooklyn’s city council delegation provided $84,575 to COJO of Flatbush and $24,830 for the Boro Park JCC for the courses, which allow residents to learn and perfect their English.

“Adult literacy is a priority for our diverse community,” Greenfield said. “After all, knowing how to read and write is vital for an adult’s success.”
