Empowering Parents Grant Program
The Empowering Parents Grant program is aimed at addressing learning loss among Idaho students. Families making less than $60,000 have priority status for receiving funds. Recipients can receive up to $1,000 per student, or $3,000 per household to help families cover the cost of a number of educational needs — such as a laptop, internet access, learning materials, or physical or occupational therapy. The grant program process is still in development, however parents can fill out this form to receive updates on the program. The program will open later this summer.
