Get Ideas

  • Do you need ideas for your grant narrative? A strong grant application is one that is built on a foundation of research and best practices and incorporates this information into the project description. When funders see that a project is well thought out, they are more likely to fund it.

    This page is designed to be a resource for developing ideas and justification when writing K-12 grants. It provides links to interesting articles and reports about issues that school districts face, as well as examples of projects that have been successful in addressing these issues. This page will be a work in progress--always evolving. If you have any links that you would like to share with others, please send them in to the Grants Office and we will post them here.
