Education Department to Extend Current Equity Projects

Education Dept. (DoEd) extends the funding period for current grantees receiving awards through the Training and Advisory Services Equity Assistance Centers (EACs) Program (CFDA Number: 84.004D).

Jenelle Leonard, a DoEd grants official, tells us that the department will use EAC funding to give current grantees an extra two years of funding for their programs. There will be no FY 2014 awards made, but there could be a FY 2015 competition, she says. Awards are made to public agencies (other than a state educational agency or a school board) and private nonprofits.

These funds go for the operation of regional EACs to provide technical assistance and training to school boards and governmental agencies in preparing, adopting and implementing plans for the desegregation of public schools. Plans can include: equity efforts to desegregate based on race, sex and national origin; and development of effective methods of coping with special educational problems caused by desegregation.
