Check Your Allocation
Your district allocations can be found on the chart below.
Determine Your Needs
Grant Allocation is between $10,000 and $29,999 --> You do not have to complete a comprehensive Needs Assessment, but you are responsible for demonstrating need for the activities in your Title IV-A program. The demonstrated needs should be the basis for your proposed outcomes and activities.
Title IV-A Program Development ProcessYour needs assessment should drive your entire Title IV-A program. Whether you focus on one need or several, your Title IV-A team should determine which of your needs you want to address through Title IV-A funding. Then, look at development of your program as a backward design process.
First, you start with your determined needs.
Then, you decide what outcomes, or final result, would help address or meet those determined needs. Once you determine the outcome you want, then ask yourself how would you measure it. Develop a measurement tool that you could use to determine whether you have meet your outcome.
Grant reviewers must ensure that LEAs clearly identify Performance Measurements and Outcomes based upon the following definitions and guidelines:
Examples of performance measurements may include, but are not limited to:
Then, figure out how to budget for your activities in order to maximize your success, to the best of your ability.
It's best to develop the entire program first, and then enter it into the grants management system as an entire program. This makes it easier to check the budget and for reviewers to assess and approve your program. This is especially true if your allocation is $30,000 or more where you have to use all three funding categories in your program. In order to best coordinate your program and budget in a meaningful way, it is best to plan it all out first, down to the budget for each activity. Then, add it into the grants management system.
