On August 23, 2019, The Ohio Deans Compact on Exceptional Children released a request for application (RFA) for a new round of incentive grant funding designed to improve IHE capacity to prepare educators to improve early language and literacy outcomes for all children.

This is a separate RFA from the incentive grant competition that closed in July 2019. Proposals will be sought in one priority areas: to work in partnership with school districts to improve literacy instruction. Efforts must align with Ohio’s Plan to Raise Literacy Achievement.

Applications may be submitted as early as noon on September 6 and no later than October 4 at 4:30 pm ET. To be eligible to submit an application, applicant institutions must have a representative attend the Compact’s Bidders Conference.

On behalf of the Ohio Deans Compact on Exceptional Children, we look forward to working with you to promote sustainable and replicable improvements in Ohio’s personnel preparation and development system that contribute to building the capacity of teachers, administrators, schools, and districts to prepare every learner for success.
