How it Works

Every year, Congress makes millions of dollars available to public schools — you have a right to know if your state or district applied for the funds and influence how they are spent.

The first step is to fill out our Opportunity Checklist, then conduct an Opportunity Audit. Once you’ve identified your school’s needs, you can create an action plan to achieve wins for student opportunity and success. To help you pay for the needs you’ve prioritized, NEA created this searchable index of grant programs and funding available under ESSA. Most grants have already been disbursed to your state and district, but others may require an application.

When you find a grant, make sure it’s appropriate for your intended use, and contact your local NEA Affiliate to organize an effort to hold your district and state accountable for how the money is used.
