INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Gov. Eric Holcomb says Indiana’s public schools can apply for funding to improve their remote learning capabilities during the coronavirus pandemic through a $61.6 million grant program.
Holcomb announced Monday that the deadline is July 17 to apply for the needs-based, competitive funding through the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief, which is financed by the federal CARES Act.
Traditional public school corporations, public charter schools, accredited non-public schools, higher education institutions, and other education-related entities are eligible to apply for the grants.
The state expects to award dozens of grants through the program.
