eProfessional Association, the nonprofit arm of Minnesota-based Distributed Website Corp., is providing $10 million in grants for web-based applications to help K-12 schools and districts add new features to their existing school web sites. For the grant process, eProfessional Association will conduct a needs assessment with the requesting organization’s technology or administrative staff. Only schools that are found to benefit from reduced operational costs as a result of the technology will be provided with grants. Grants range from $500 to $100,000 depending upon the applicant’s need. Applicants are required to contribute a portion of the cost, which will be determined based on the school’s financial capability.
