DC School School Choice Incentive Program: Note: Each funding opportunity description is a synopsis of information in the Federal Register application notice.

Free Internet access to the official edition of the Federal Register and the Code of Federal Regulations is available on GPO Access at: http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/index.html. Purpose of Program: The DC School Choice Incentive Program provides low-income parents residing in the District of Columbia (District) with expanded options for the education of their children. This program is part of a broader school improvement effort in the District that is founded on the belief that all education sectors--public schools, public charter schools and non-public schools--can offer quality education experiences for the District's students, and that those students who are the most economically disadvantaged have the least access to such experiences. One or more grants will be awarded on a competitive basis to eligible applicants to establish a scholarship program to provide eligible students with expanded school choice options. Students who are residents of the District and who come from households whose income does not exceed 185 percent of the poverty line are eligible to apply for scholarships from a grantee under this program. These scholarships may be used to pay the tuition and fees and transportation expenses, if any, to enable students to attend the participating District non-public elementary or secondary school of their choice. Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 84.370A.
