Grants to Massachusetts nonprofit organizations and schools for diversity programs. Funding is intended for programs that increase the diversity of teachers. Priority will be placed on programs for high school students, paraprofessional-to-teacher projects, and organizational partnerships.

The competitive Massachusetts Public K–12 Educator Diversification RFP is designed to support nonprofit organizations and institutes of higher education efforts to diversify the Massachusetts educator workforce.

Through the use of state funds, grant recipients will develop and implement thoughtful, high-impact strategies intended to both increase the recruitment and retention of effective racially and ethnically diverse Massachusetts educators.

Applicants may propose to use grant funds to strengthen existing teacher recruitment and retention programs in one or more of the following ways.

Option A: Existing Programs

Grant funds may be used to enhance and expand the organizations existing programs designed to increase the recruitment and retention of effective racial and ethnically diverse Massachusetts public K–12 educators.

Option B: New Programs

Grant funds may be used to support the development of new programs designed to increase the recruitment and retention of effective racial and ethnically diverse Massachusetts public K–12 educators.

Option C: School and District Partnerships

Grant funds may be used to develop new partnerships between the organization and Massachusetts public schools and districts (traditional public schools, districts, charter schools, career vocational technical education schools, approved private special education schools, and regional collaboratives). The partnerships must be designed to increase the school or district's diverse educator recruitment and retention efforts.

Competitive priorities for this grant will be given to:

  1. Organizations that support education-specific pathways for high school students.
  2. Organizations with established teacher recruitment and retention programs, which include, but are not limited to: paraprofessional-to-teacher programs.
  3. Organizations that partner with schools and districts designated as chronically underperforming in the state accountability system.

Funds must be used to support Massachusetts efforts to create a more diverse and culturally responsive public K–12 educator workforce. Activities must be reasonable, appropriate, and consistent with all applicable state and federal requirements.
