Grant Opportunities



Application Window for Cycle 7 is now closed. 


School Action Fund

The School Action Fund Grant (SAF) application is available to LEAs serving Title I Comprehensive Schools and Targeted Schools, based on school year 2021-2022 ratings. If selected, districts will receive planning and implementation funds and technical assistance to take school actions to transform or create new schools. 

Application Process

The SAF Grant Application includes a written and interview component. 
Districts submit a written application to demonstrate your vision and readiness to begin planning a specific school action. The application asks districts to describe your community needs analysis, how you selected the school action, how you plan to measure and evaluate progress and your budget for the planning year.
The application interview is your opportunity to go beyond the written application, emphasize key points from your application, and demonstrate that you have a strong plan in place.
