Educational Innovation Grants (EIG Grants) will support new and uniquely innovative projects with projected positive outcomes that can be quantified, and that respond to a defined need and interest. Currently there is no deadline to apply for a MCFEE grant. The grant application process in now operating on a rolling basis. Approved Grant funds will be available beginning July 1, 2023 for the 2023-24 school year. Grant funding for the 2022-23 school year is closed.
The amount for the EIG grants will be determined by the MCFEE funds available and the EITC (Business Tax Credit) donation pool. MCFEE will be responsible for getting the ideas approved by the state and is bound by their decision on using EITC funding.
Applicants are asked to provide budget justification for whatever amount they need to get the project completed satisfactorily.
