Different names of federal grants.

Federal Grants

Federal formula or “Title” grants are non-competitive—each state receives a portion of the funding based on a formula. States in turn pass the funding on to local districts and schools. Federal grants can be an important source to support Curriculum Associates’ research-proven assessment and instruction solutions.

Competitive Grants

Competitive grants can bring new funding to your district or school. Grants fund a specific program or project and are awarded to districts or schools through a rigorous and selective application process. Competitive grants require specific eligibility criteria, and submitted proposals are evaluated by a review committee that makes final funding decisions.


Different educational organizations.

Foundation and Corporate Grants

Foundation and corporate grants are another source of potential funding. Foundations are typically funded from a single source, such as a family, an individual, or a corporation’s charitable entity. Each funder determines eligibility criteria, based on its priorities and values. Grants often require awardees to follow reporting guidelines that define how the grant funds are to be used.
