If you, your business, or your civic organization want to help our
teachers and schools be more innovative and effective, consider offering
a financial grant as an incentive. We can
help you understand our schools' needs and help connect teachers
and schools to your opportunity.
Grant opportunities must be approved by the Wake County Board of Education
before teachers or staff may apply, and they must align to the
school board's and Superintendent's goals and strategies.
Types of grant programs
- Entitlement grants are ones that we are entitled to receive from
the state or federal government based upon a formula by which funds
are distributed to all eligible school systems that properly complete
an application for the grant.
- Competitive grants are ones that we compete with other school
systems or organizational entities. Awards are based upon the interest
of the funding agency and the merits of the applicant's proposal,
and not all eligible applicants will receive a grant.
- Collaborative grants are ones where we enter into collaboration
with other organizational entities and a different agency is the fiscal agent responsible for managing the grant.
