Grants and Funding Sources

Federal and State funding is available for the purchase of the HELP Program. The following table provides an overview of funding sources:

Federal Funding Source

Title I Grants: Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged  

Provides supplemental programs to enable educationally disadvantaged children, particularly those attending schools in high-poverty areas, to learn the reading, math and core academic subjects in order to meet high standards. Title I, Part A funds can be used for school-wide programs.

Funds are available for technology programs, supplemental education services, additional instruction in math and professional development.

Title II Grants: Preparing, Training and Recruiting High Quality Teachers and Principals  

Designed to assist state and local education agencies, including schools, with improving the quality of teaching and learning. This initiative advocates the alignment of school curricula with state standards and the integration of educational technology into the classroom.

Funds are available for test-preparation products, professional development programs in educational technology and core academic subjects and distance learning programs.

Title III Grants: Language Instruction For Limited English Proficient And Immigrant Students

Provides federal funding for ELL programs. With the added measures of accountability in the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 and the quicker transitioning of ELLs to mainstream classrooms, instructional materials for ELLs-both basic textbooks and supplementary materials-have become that much more important to raise achievement and to assist teachers in making all students successful.

Funds are available for school districts to provide high quality language instruction programs that are based on scientifically based research, and that have demonstrated that they are effective in increasing English proficiency and student achievement.

Title IV Grants: 21st Century Schools Provides opportunities for academic enrichment, particularly students who attend low-performing schools, to meet State and local student academic achievement standards in core academic subjects.

Funds are available for remedial instruction programs, test preparation programs for at-risk students, literacy education and technology education.

Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Funds exist for programs, materials, and services that benefit pre-school-12 students identified as having physical, mental, and/or emotional disabilities. The most recent change to IDEA stated that all special education students are still required to take and pass the same state-wide assessments as general education students.

Funds are available for test preparation materials and programs, academic intervention programs, software and software licenses.
