How to apply...
State educational agencies submit State plans to the Department of Education in accordance with requirements in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and guidance by the Department.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
The Department of Education awards grants to SEAs based on their relative shares of ESEA Title I, Part A funds. SEAs award subgrants giving priority to proposals that target areas designated as empowerment zones or enterprise communities or that propose to serve families in other high-poverty areas.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
