GrantWatch ID#: 177011

Estimated Size of Grant:

Each teacher may request up to $1,000; there is no maximum grant size per total administrator request.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

D.E.A.F. will provide Technology that Supports Literacy (TSL) grants to school administrators working in tandem with teachers. Though each teacher is responsible for completing details of his/her request, the school administrator is charged with consolidating all teacher requests into one application. This assures a comprehensive overview of the school’s technology plan.

To qualify for the TSL grant, the grant application must meet the following criteria:

- An administrator must compile all requests from his/her teachers into one application.
- Each teacher requesting funds must complete a supplementary application to be attached to the administrator application.
- A teacher who is certified in the State of Ohio must coordinate each project, and must have at least one student who is deaf or hard-of-hearing.
- Quotes for technological equipment from a reputable technology dealer must be included with the application.

Note: The organization must have a primary impact in Franklin County.
