Arizona: Governor Hobbs Announces $187.5M in Grant Funding Opportunities for Education

PHOENIX ~ Governor Katie Hobbs has announced a new grant opportunity that will provide $100 million to schools and local education agencies in Arizona to address COVID-19 recovery and mitigation efforts. The Governor's Office of Strategic Planning and Budgeting has issued a Request for Grant Applications for the program, which is designed to be more competitive, transparent, and better align with direction from the U.S. Department of Treasury.

Applications for this grant program must be submitted through the State's web-based grants management system, eCivis, by 5 p.m. MST on April 6th, 2023. A pre-application conference for potential applicants will be held on Tuesday, March 14th at 11am.

In addition to this grant program, OSPB will also issue two additional competitive grant solicitations: a $37.5 million grant program for 2023 summer enrichment programming and a third $50 million grant program to address long-term programming and initiatives to address the negative impacts of COVID-19 on student learning, social and emotional behavior, and teacher professional development.

"Our schools and local education agencies deserve grant opportunities that are done in a competitive and comprehensive manner," said Governor Hobbs. "They have been through so much these last few years, and they need support as they recover from the effects of the pandemic."

The application can be accessed through the eCIVIS AZ portal; new users will need to create a free account which will allow them to access all current solicitations in Arizona. The registration for the pre-application conference can be found here.
