Request for Applications

School Improvement Grant for Quality Education Investment Act (QEIA) Schools

Note: The due date for the request for applications has passed. This page is for reference and administration of funding.

Section 1003(g) of Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), also known as the School Improvement Grant (SIG), authorizes funds to help local educational agencies (LEAs) address the needs of schools in improvement, corrective action, and restructuring in order to improve student achievement. An LEA must have a school participating in QEIA in order to qualify for funding through this RFA. Further, because the funding sources identified above may only be provided to schools in Program Improvement (PI), only LEAs with schools in QEIA that also meet this criterion are eligible to receive funding through this RFA.
