Part B of Title VI of the reauthorized ESEA contains three separate Rural Education Achievement Program (REAP) initiatives that are designed to help rural districts that may lack the personnel and resources to compete effectively for Federal competitive grants and that often receive grant allocations in amounts that are too small to be effective in meeting their intended purposes. Information on 3 initiatives
Please join the U.S. Department of Education's Rural Education Achievement Program (REAP) team for the “REAP: What LEAs Need to Know in FY 2017” webinar on one of the following dates. Registration is required, and we encourage attendees to register at their earliest convenience.
These webinars are for local education agencies (LEAs), to help them better understand:
• Uses of SRSA and RLIS grant funds
• Eligibility criteria for SRSA and RLIS in FY 2017 and beyond
• The new, annual SRSA grant application process
• The FY 2017 and FY 2018 grant timelines
The goal is for LEAs to come away from the seminar with a better understanding of the changes to the requirements, procedures, and timelines for Small, Rural Schools Achievement (SRSA) and Rural, Low Income Schools (RLIS) grants. The webinars are also opportunities for LEAs to ask and have their questions answered live by REAP program officers. (State education agency representatives and rural education stakeholders are also welcome to attend.)
