- The TPS Regional program accepts proposals for projects lasting up to 18 months, on a rolling basis. Before applying for a grant, please review the website for your region and submit a Notice of Intent. Regional staff will help you determine if your grant idea falls within the funding guidelines of the program.
- The TPS Regional program can offer advice and assistance to organizations who would like to incorporate TPS methods and materials into their programs, but do not need or receive funding.
- A successful grant application will include a thorough description of the intended project, its audience and content, a timeline of activities and a budget and narrative. Evaluators also look for a supporting management structure and a plan for sustained delivery of TPS content.
- Applicants learn of granting decisions within six weeks of submitting proposals.
When making granting decisions, regional staff consider whether the proposed project:
- Provides access to geographic areas and populations not currently served by TPS Consortium members;
- Includes professional development activities and partnerships that increase the likelihood of the project helping teachers achieve TPS goals;
- Describes the grantee organization’s sustained use of TPS content within its professional development programs for teachers;
- Exhibits sound planning, recruitment, implementation, and resource allocation.
Grantees must submit brief financial and program reports. Grant funds will be disbursed upon submission of appropriate documentation of expenditures.
