The K-12 Federal Funding Landscape: What's on the Horizon for 2019?

In this session, we'll start with a review of the federal funding landscape & what education funding trends we see based on the current political climate. The bulk of the time will then be spent covering annual grant programs (no less than 5) that support a variety of education initiatives (e.g. literacy, STEM, distance learning, afterschool programs) from various federal agencies. Anticipated funding priorities, award amounts, & deadlines will be reviewed for each grant discussed. To conclude, 10 tips for writing a successful grant proposal will be offered to increase the likelihood of successful future grant submissions by attendees.

Given the emphasis on anticipated direct & pass-through programs, this session best fits within the "Federal Grants" Learning Track.
