The Florida Health Literacy Grant Initiative, funded by the Florida Blue Foundation and operated by the Florida Literacy Coalition (FLC), provides statewide emphasis on health literacy and seeks to address the health literacy disparities present in many adult English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) learners. The cornerstone of this statewide initiative is a mini-grant program that provides training, resources and funding to assist Florida ESOL and family literacy programs integrate health education into their instruction to teach students English language and literacy skills necessary to enable adult learners and their families to access and navigate the health care system.
