Grants to eligible USA member sites that are seeking funds to implement innovative, high-quality programs that aim to improve and develop teachers' skills and abilities to successfully teach writing in the nation’s schools. The goal of these grants is to provide new learning opportunities through local Writing Project sites for 3,000 teachers across the country. These teacher leaders can be both new fellows and existing teacher leaders participating in programs that expand their capacities and support their effectiveness.

Successful proposals will outline a plan to expand teacher leadership in the program's area by preparing new teacher leaders, by offering expanded leadership opportunities to the site’s existing teacher leaders, or through some combination of the two.

Funds may be used to support programming in the summer of 2014, the 2014-2015 academic year, the summer of 2015, the 2015-16 academic year, and/or the summer of 2016. Funds may be used to support educators in summer institutes, advanced institutes, school-year leadership development programs, and other programs at the site intended to empower and increase the number of teacher leaders locally.

Note: no more than $10,000 of grant funds can be allocated for use prior to May 1, 2015. Any portion of the funds may be carried forward to be used in 2015-2016.
