Funding and Grant Sources

We understand the challenge of funding new initiatives. Fortunately, many schools have found relief and district renewal through local, state and grant funding opportunities.

Begin exploring some of the potential sources of funding for your PD initiative.

  • Check the State Department of Education website for your state frequently for funding source opportunities
  • Check with local foundations and visit websites of national industry publications such as eSchool News and Digital Directions by Education Week.
  • The federal government has multiple resources on accessing funding sources, including Federal Funding Dear Colleague Letter and a Professional Development Toolkit.
  • Some districts have sufficient local funding or pass special tax levies or bond issues to support their eMINTS implementations. Check with your local school district financial officer to see what is possible.
We have proven experience in the grant process, having been awarded and collaborated on numerous grant projects.* If you are interested in learning more about how we might collaborate on funding your professional development initiative, see our Grant Collaborations page.

*Please note, as a non-profit organization, eMINTS does not award grants, but we do collaborate and consult on the grant process.
