The Office of Grants and Program Development has a simple goal: To help
the City School District of Albany give its students the very best
The office seeks funding to support programs that address the
educational, emotional and social needs of students through both
competitive application processes and government entitlements. For
districts like Albany that face increasingly tough budgets, grant
funding has become an important means to support programming. Grants are
not intended to fund the general education of students, but rather allow
the district to start new, or expand, innovative programs that benefit
students and families without burdening taxpayers.
During the 2010-11 school year, the office secured and monitored more
than 50 grants worth more than $25 million, with approximately $20
million in entitlement or formula funds and more than $5.7 million in
competitive funding. A number of
these grants continued into 2011-12, while others sunset.
The district’s allocations for entitlement monies via multiple
grants will be announced periodically, but as of August the office
already had secured approximately $8 million in competitive grant monies
and anticipates applying for multiple new grants throughout the year.
New and continuing competitive grants include:
