Native American Achievement Schools
Grant Program

Passed by the 2016 Legislature, Senate Bill 82 provides grants for up to three schools that demonstrate commitment to increasing student success through building cultural identities, encouraging academic perseverance, supporting the development of the whole child, and encouraging student leadership skills. Selected applicants receive funding for a period of three years, with the expectation that schools will begin serving students in fall of 2019.

The application period for these grants is now closed.
