Emergency Grants Overview
The Department has $100,000 available for the 2015 Biennium to be used for emergency grants to public school districts.

These grants are awarded directly through the Department. The Department will report to the Governor and Legislature regarding each Emergency Grant awarded during the previous biennium.
