Happy New Year from all of us at TheGrantHelpers.com. We want to help you start off the new year with some important updates and tips about the grant world.
President Obama recently released his $4 trillion Fiscal Year 2016 federal budget, a wish list of items he wants to pursue in his last full year in office. It’s only a wish list because it must be passed by politicians on both sides of the aisle. After that, any approved amounts have to be turned into funding programs and announcements. So while this budget is anything but definite there are several points of interest for the grant world. Theoretically, you will have plenty of time to prepare for any resulting requests for proposals. FY 2016 is from October 1, 2015 through September 30, 2016.
Any educator knows that it is never too early to start planning for next year. While the traditional school year is currently coming to a close, TheGrantHelpers.com highlights the following federal educational grants that may be of interest to educators and the non-profit organizations that provide support to schools and students. All of these highlighted grants are from the United States Department of Education’s Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE). Generally speaking, state educational agencies (SEAs), local educational agencies (LEAs), and non-profit organizations are invited to apply for these grants.
