Writing a Quality Grant Proposal for The Parental Information and Resource Centers Program
CFDA #84.310A
U.S. Department of Education
Office of Innovation and Improvement and Center for Faith-Based and Community Initiatives


The Parental Information and Resource Centers Grant Program provides grants to nonprofit agencies, including faith-based and community organizations, or consortia of nonprofit agencies and school districts to fund information centers that will help parents participate more effectively in their children's education. To accomplish this goal, they will provide information to school personnel who work with parents; coordinate early childhood programs with school-age programs; and inform the parents of children who attend schools in need of improvement about their options. The Secretary of Education is placing special emphasis this year on first-time applicants and applicants who propose specific strategies to help parents better understand their State accountability system and how to access the public school choice and supplemental education services opportunities provided by the No Child Left Behind Act


The Webcast is best seen using a high-speed Internet connection. A local library may offer such a connection.
