Neighborhood School Grants: FAQ

Who is eligible?

All public schools and charter schools located in District 13 and District 14 are eligible to apply for funding, including schools that received grants last year.

What kind of projects/activities do we fund?

There is no restriction on the type of projects we will consider. We believe that individual schools themselves know best how to assess their needs and how to address them given their unique capabilities and resources.

Our priority is to support those projects that do the most to enrich students’ learning experiences and help a school to achieve its central mission, but which are not supported by the school’s existing budget allocation. We believe this can best be achieved through initiatives that draw on the creativity, vision and energy of the entire school community—from students & their families, to faculty & staff, and even beyond to the neighborhood at large. Therefore we will give preference to projects that demonstrate the involvement of a large and diverse team through all phases of project conception, development and implementation.

What are the selection criteria?
  • Expected impact on student experience and achievement
  • Degree to which project supports school mission and enriches school community
  • Capacity of applicant to implement project activities and achieve project goals
  • Inclusion of a broad range of participants and stakeholders in all project phases
What is the grant amount?

Grants can be requested for any amount up to $25,000. We may decide to award partial funding.

How many grants will be awarded?

Approximately $250,000 will be awarded for the 2016-2017 program cycle. There is no fixed number of grants.

What can grant funds be used for?

There is no restriction on the type of project expenditures that grants may support. The grant application requires a line-item budget detailing what funds are requested for and a budget narrative describing how funds will be used. All grant funds must be used according to approved project budgets, and all expenditures must be thoroughly documented.

How does a school apply?

Applications must submit an application with support materials at https://wff-neighborhood-school-grants.submittable.com/submit

When is the application deadline?

Applications must be received by Tuesday, May 31st. Deadline extensions cannot be granted under any circumstances.

When will grants be awarded?

Grants will be announced in July, and funds will be disbursed by September.

What is the grant period?

Grants are awarded on an annual cycle. Grants awarded in July of 2016 are intended to support projects taking place during the 2016-2017 school year. Grant expenditures must be complete by June 2017.

What are the reporting requirements?

Grantees will be required to submit a progress report in January 2017 and a final report in June 2017. Reports will detail project activities, assess successes and shortfalls in meeting project goals, and provide financial records documenting grant expenditures.
