For purposes of this grant, no school district shall receive more than forty percent (40%) of the total grant funds. Further, no grantee may receive final payment that exceeds the total actual expenditures incurred by the district.
Applicants must use the Grant Calculator in Appendix C to determine the maximum grant request based on the number of new full-day placements, half-day placements converted to full-day, and/or half-day placements to be created and the adjusted grant for Year One based on the number of days the program will be in operation.
Year One grant awards for winning school districts will be based on the number of days in which students are to be served. The grant payable will be reduced by 1/180th for each day less than 180 that the program is in operation.
Project Period Initial period: July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020.
In the 2020-2021 school year and thereafter, each grantee’s award will be consolidated with the district’s Universal Prekindergarten allocation as specified in Section 3602-e of Education Law, subject to an available appropriation in the State budget for this purpose and provided that the grantee has met all requirements of this grant.
