Information Technology Infrastructure Grants provide technology infrastructure to improve the capacity of rural school districts and libraries to utilize technology for students and patrons. Only eligible, individual, rural school districts and libraries may apply. $7,500,000 is available for State Fiscal Years 16, 17 & 19. $15,000,000 is available for State Fiscal Year 18. These are not additional funds to the TEACH Grant program. They are a reallocation of existing funds within TEACH.
Infrastructure grants are competitive based upon school districts with the greatest free or reduced-price lunch percentage. Funding for Information Technology Infrastructure Grants is contingent upon available TEACH funds.
