Grant Programs Unit

The Grants Program Unit of the Georgia Department of Education's Title I Programs Division administers several federal formula and competitive grant programs.

  • Formula Grants are awarded to the Department of Education based on a predetermined formula (population, other factors). Formula-driven grants are passed on to local agencies and organizations via subgrants.

  • Competitive Grants are awarded to the the Department of Education who, in turn, awards grants on a competive basis, consistent with congressional earmarks, to public and private nonprofit organizations.

Each Grant Program Specialist provides technical assistance, approves grant budgets, monitors for program quality, and evaluates the effectiveness and implementation of the grant program.
