There are several annual Federal Block Grants under No Child Left Behind that are controlled by the New Hampshire Department of Education (NHDOE). Each summer, the NHDOE allocates these funds among the school districts in our state by using a formula to determine how much each district will receive for the coming school year. The grants are listed below. If you have any questions regarding the distribution of funds (how the money is used by the districts), please call the SAU office or email Cynthia.Matte@sau41.org , grant manager for Title grants and Amy.Rowe@sau41.org, grant manager for IDEA grants.
These grants are used to provide services that are not in the school districts’ budgets. IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act) and IDEA Preschool are grants that provide the Federal Government’s part in funding special education under IDEA. The Title IA program is for program to address the needs of economically and academically disadvantaged students. Title IIA funds are to be used for staff and administration professional development.
Small local grants are sometimes applied for in each building by staff members. An example of such a grant would be a “Visiting Artist” grant.
