Georgia MEP's Consortium Incentive Grants ​

The U.S. Department of Education awarded four continuation Consortium Incentive Grants (CIGs) to 33 participating States. The CIG program provides financial incentives to SEAs to improve the interstate or intrastate coordination of migrant education programs by addressing key academic needs of migratory children who have their education interrupted.  The Georgia Migrant Education Program (GaMEP) has participated in three of the four funded CIG programs since 2015. 

  • ​The Preschool Initiative Consortium Incentive Grant (PI CIG) aims to increase parent engagement and improve migrant preschoolers’ academic performance. For more information visit:
  • Graduation and Outcomes for Success for Out-of-School Youth (GOSOSY) aims to identify and recruit, assess, and develop/deliver services to migrant out-of-school youth (OSY).  For more information visit:
  • The Identification & Recruitment Rapid Response Consortium (IRRC) aims to improve the proper and timely identification and recruitment (ID&R) of eligible migratory children. For more information visit:​
