Get the Funding You Need for the Technology You Want

We hope that we’ve cleared away some of the confusion about the qualifications for obtaining two of the five U.S. DOE funds: Race to the Top and 21st Century Community Learning Centers, Title IV, Part B. Next on our list is the Charter Schools Program. If you qualify for this fund, you may be one step closer to obtaining the technology your classrooms need.

Charter Schools

The Charter School Program State Education Agency (SEA) Competition provides grants to a state’s Department of Education (or to a state agency serving the same function) to plan, design, and implement new charter schools, as well as to disseminate information on successful charter schools.

SEAs in the 40 states (41 including Washington, DC) with a state statute specifically authorizing the establishment of charter schools may apply. A state receiving SEA grant money then makes three-year subgrants to developers of charters in its state who have applied for or have already received a charter.

A state may reserve up to 10% of its allocation to support successful charter schools wishing to disseminate information. A charter school may apply for dissemination funds whether or not it has applied for or received funds for planning and implementation. To qualify for the dissemination funds, a school must also have been operating for at least three consecutive years and must have demonstrated overall success.
