The Assembly Grant Program launched in July 2023 to help families access flexible, personalized learning options. Innovative solutions that help families access funding, information, and guidance are crucial to ensuring that all families – especially those furthest from opportunity – can take advantage of options like extracurricular activities, high-impact tutoring, specialized education supports, and/or alternative learning models.  

Phase 1 of the grant program invited applicants to submit their ideas for new solutions. We received more than 150 applications from organizations across the country and awarded $100,000 to seven Phase 1 finalists in November 2023. With this funding, grantees designed and developed their ideas into prototypes and pilot solutions. At the end of Phase 1, all seven organizations were invited to apply for Phase 2 grants to support the implementation of their solutions. 

We are thrilled to announce that Children’s Scholarship Fund New Hampshire and Outschool.org have been selected for Phase 2 grants. Both grantees stood out because of their commitment to families furthest from opportunity and the potential to grow and sustain their solutions. You can read more about Phase 1 and 2 of the Assembly Grant Program here. We look forward to supporting Children’s Scholarship Fund and Outschool.org, and we are excited to see the impact they will have on families accessing flexible, personalized learning options.
