Title I, Part A 1003 School Improvement - School Closures
|1. If we applied for and were awarded a competitive grant, are we able to amend our grant and budget to address immediate needs?
|Amended costs could be considered so long as they meet the objectives of the approved grant plan. Proposed amended expenditures would also need to be reasonable and necessary.
|2. Will the deadline be extended for 1003 School Improvement Funds, especially since there is no carryover?
|GaDOE will extend awards which were active as of March 31, 2020 and scheduled to expire prior or up to December 31, 2020 (FY19 funding), automatically at no cost for a period up to twelve (12) months. This will allow time for grantee assessments, the resumption of many individual projects, and a report on program progress and financial status to be completed and submitted. Project-specific financial and performance reports will be due 90 days following the end date of the extension. FY20 funds will continue to be available for the duration of the 27-month period of availability (July 1, 2019 to September 30, 2021).
