Title III Library

The Title III Office provides technical assistance and training to teachers, administrators, and other stakeholders; analyzes data about EL students; and awards Title III grants to public school districts and charter schools, entities considered local education agencies.

For Title III – Part A grants, a local education agency (LEA) may apply as a single entity if its Preliminary Allocation is $10,000 or greater, or it may form a consortium with other LEAs, as long as the collective enrollment of English Language Learners qualifies the consortium for a grant of $10,000 or greater. In a consortium, one LEA must fulfill the role of Fiscal Agent, and all LEAs in the consortium are required to meet ESSA Title III Program Assurances as well as the NH DOE's sub-grantee requirements.

To qualify to receive grants under Title III—Immigrant Students and Promising Practices, an LEA must be a current recipient of a Title III – Part A grant as either a single entity or consortium member.

LEAs applying for Title III funds must complete the following: NHDOE General Assurances, ESSA Program Assurances for Title III and General Education Provisions Act (GEPA) requirements (pages 12-13 and 24 respectively), and the Equitable Services requirements (additional documents for equitable services: Part A and Part B).
