Race to the Top

Office of Economic Stimulus

Race to the Top (RTTT) is a competitive America Recovery and Reinvestment (ARRA) grant program which will provide more than $4 billion dollars to states for the purpose of advancing reforms around four specific areas

  • Adopting standards and assessments that prepare students to succeed in college and the workplace and to compete in the global economy;
  • Building data systems that measure student growth and success, and inform teachers and principals about how they can improve instruction;
  • Recruiting, developing, rewarding, and retaining effective teachers and principals, especially where they are needed most; and
  • Turning around our lowest-achieving schools.

In January 2010, NH and 39 other states submitted proposals for the Phase I funding. Delaware and Tennessee were the only two recipients of Race to the Top Phase I. States not funded in Phase I may submit a Phase II application by June 1, 2010. New Hampshire was not one of the 19 finalists chosen to potentially receive Race to the Top (RTTT) funds.
