Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grants

May 22, 2018

Across the country, schools are facing urgent social issues that keep young people from success. While teachers and education leaders work hard to provide all students with a safe place to learn and grow, they often lack the resources to address the most pressing crises, like school safety concerns and the effect of the opioid epidemic on students and families.

Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) grants provide flexibility for school districts to make investments in initiatives that reflect the needs of their students. This new block grant, created by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), will empower districts to make meaningful, strategic decisions about which schools have the greatest need or have been identified for improvement.
