ESSA: Seizing a $1.1 Billion Opportunity

The bipartisan Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) includes a flexible block grant program under Title IV, Part A, “Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grants.” This block grant program authorizes activities in three broad areas including: providing students with a well-rounded education, supporting safe and healthy students, and supporting the effective use of technology.

Title IV, Part A was funded at $1.1 billion for the 2018-19 school year, giving school districts access to significant funding to support these program areas, which include health education and physical education!

Steps to Making Your Funding Request:

  • Find out how much Title IV, Part A funding will be available for your school district using SHAPE America’s online request form.
  • Plan your request using SHAPE America’s ESSA Brainstorming Worksheet to help you craft the right messages that will resonate with school administrators.
  • Complete the template letter provided, to make your request.

Share any success stories or challenges with SHAPE America via email or on social media using #MoreTitleIV!
