Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Massachusetts school districts, charter schools, vocational education schools, education collaboratives, and Approved Special Education Schools (ASES) for capacity-building programs. Funding is intended to provide educational technology to teachers. Competitive priority will be given to districts and schools in chronically underperforming status.

The purpose of this federally funded competitive grant program is to provide funds for districts to adopt or expand capacity-building programming that builds the collective expertise of educators to utilize technology to deliver high-quality instruction.

In addition to providing professional development opportunities for educators in effective uses of educational technology, the Department is specifically seeking to fund programming that aligns to longer-term strategic plans of LEAs to develop wide-scale capacity for all classrooms to effectively leverage technology to enhance teaching and learning.

Funds must be used to adopt or expand capacity-building programming, projects, and activities that build the collective expertise of educators to utilize technology to deliver high-quality instruction. Proposals for grant funds must demonstrate how the use of funds will directly align to each of the following required elements:

  1. Effective Instruction
  2. High-Quality Professional Learning
  3. Effective Use of Technology to Support Instruction
  4. Equity and Digital Equity
  5. Sustainability of capacity-building efforts

More information about these elements can be found on the URL for Full Text, see below.
