School Year 2019-2020 Additional Grants for the Expanded Prekindergarten (EPK Round 4) are now available. The purpose EPK grants is to increase the availability of high quality prekindergarten placements for high need children and schools within New York State. Grants are being offered to help districts establish new full-day prekindergarten placements, convert existing half-day placements to full-day, or create new half-day placements for three- and/or four-year old students, targeting the highest need schools and children within school districts.
Eligibility: All public school districts are eligible to apply. Due to the highly competitive nature of this grant, a strong preference for funding will be given to high need districts, especially those that currently do not offer a state funded prekindergarten program.
Grant Amount: Grant amounts will vary by district. Please use the EPK Grant Calculator (Appendix C) which can be found on the Announcement of Funding Opportunity.
