The National Literacy Directory launched in 2010 with funding from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. It is designed to help individuals find local literacy and education programs and GED testing centers in their areas. The National Literacy Directory contains over 7,000 educational agencies located across the United States. Another component of the directory is a toll-free number that individuals can call to get a local program referral.

The National Literacy Directory is a joint effort of the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, the National Center for Families Learning and ProLiteracy. Dollar General has a long history of supporting literacy and basic education initiatives for adults, families and youth.
