State-Funded Equity Grants
PDE has allocated up to $5 million dollars in state funding for equity grants for schools to purchase computer equipment, such as laptops, tablets, and internet hot spots, or to use towards providing instructional materials, such as paper lessons and coursework.
Schools with the highest percentages of students lacking access to resources will be given priority in receiving these grants.
The grant application window opened on April
6. Applications were required to be submitted via PDE’s eGrants system by
11:59 p.m. on April 10.
