• Welcome
    Thank you for visiting the Grants Department website
    Welcome to the DCPS Grants Department. The Grants team supports district-wide competitive grant funding to bring additional dollars to our students. The Grants team also provides information and resources for DCPS departments and schools.

    Many DCPS schools and district departments submit grant applications directly. If you apply for a grant on behalf of your school or department, please let us know! We also urge schools and departments to review the Grants Department website for guidance to make sure you are following district, state, and federal policy.

    Remember, every grant over $10,000 must be reported to the Grants Office, and every request over $75,000 must be reported to the board.

    Did you receive a grant? Don't forget to share the good news! 

     Click here to report your grant request or award to the district office.

    See the "Tell Others About My Grant" page for more information.
