On May 11, 2020 the U.S. Department of Education’s (ED) Office of School Support and Accountability Programs released a notice inviting applications for fiscal year 2020 for the Student-Centered Funding Demonstration Grants Program, Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number 84.424E. The Well-Rounded Education through Student-Centered Funding Demonstration Grants program provides competitive grants to local educational agencies (LEAs) to demonstrate model programs for providing well-rounded education opportunities through the development and implementation of student-centered funding systems based on weighted per-pupil allocations under Section 1501 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). Grants awarded under this program are intended to help build the capacity of LEAs to provide well-rounded education to establish models for expanding and enhancing delivery of such opportunities for educationally disadvantaged students. The deadline to submit applications for this grant is July 10, 2020.
To provide support with applying for this grant, on May 26, 2020 from 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM ET the Office of School Support and Accountability Programs in collaboration with the Title IV, Part A Technical Assistance Center (T4PA Center) will be hosting a technical assistance webinar for prospective applicants.
