It’s a new calendar year, and while we’re still in the middle of the school year, you’re probably back from winter break feeling ready to tackle new projects–including school grants.

School leaders consistently identify high costs and shrinking budgets as a top barrier to implementing new technology tools and programs. What’s more, schools in economically-challenged areas have uphill battles trying to find grants to improve resources and opportunities for teachers and students.

Budget challenges won’t improve right away, but school districts can boost their available funds with grants that are targeted to different areas of need.

6 grants to check out in early 2019! Don't miss the deadlines!

Check out the following six grants, which cover literacy, learning spaces, drug awareness, and more.

Steelcase Active Learning Center Grants include furniture, design review, installation, onsite training, and a Learning Environment Evaluation measurement tool.
Deadline: Feb. 1, 2019
