Charter School Grant Programs

There is currently no new federal Charter School Program funding (SEA or non-SEA) available for Georgia charter schools.  Georgia plans to compete in the next SEA competition in early 2015.  If Georgia receives an award, eligible charter schools will be able to apply for funding through an SEA sub-grant competition, but will not be eligible to compete in the non-SEA competition likely to be held by USED later in 2015.  If Georgia does not receive an award, charter schools will be eligible to compete in the next non-SEA competition USED holds.  Please check back regularly for updates.
