Welcome to the SPPS Grants Office

  • Grant management icon. A grant is a legal contract to provide funding for a specific goal or outcome. It is not a gift, free of obligation or expectations. Grant funding comes from a variety of public and private sources. Grants allow SPPS to further educational research, expand services, and provide programs or resources to students that would otherwise not be possible. If you work with grants, or would like to work with them in the future, it may be helpful to familiarize yourself with the life cycle of a grant.

    Money given to a school or program with any expectations or strings attached is considered a grant and should be managed accordingly.

    The SPPS Grants Office supports teachers, school leaders and administrators through all stages of the grants process, from application to closeout and final reporting. All grants come through the SPPS Grants Office in one way or another. All grant acceptances must be approved by the superintendent and the  board of education, and we can help with this process.

    • Application development and submission
    • Board approval
    • Budget development

  • Ecolab Teacher Grants Program Application Update!

    We recognize that this is a particularly tough time for teachers, and that completing a grant application may not fit into the routine academic fire extinguishing our educators are doing.
    To make it possible for more teachers to apply for an ETGP grant, we are extending the deadline to 6pm on May 31. Late submissions will not be accepted.

    You will need to start by downloading the interactive checklist, as it will walk you through all the steps, ideally without overloading you.  Grants staff are available to assist you through this process!

    To get the checklist or to view eligibility details, fund limitations, the application process, and applicant resources, see the ETGP application page
