On October 8, 2009, the federal government hosted a webinar to explain a new grant promoting innovation in education. The actual grant was published in the Federal Register on 10/9/09 and included $650 million in funding. To view the presentation and links to information check out the Ed.gov blog. This money is available to local education agencies and non-profits in conjunction with LEA’s. So check out the timelines and talk with your school/district leaders.
