About Our Grants

2018-19 Grant Cycle

Applications for the 2018-19 academic year are closed. Please visit our Grant Forms page for links to the application, grant criteria, and samples of successful grant applications from previous years. 2018-19 grant apps will be due Nov. 20.

LEAF's Board meets in early December to review the applications and award grants. All technology-related grants are first reviewed by the district's tech committee, which gives direction to our board as we consider how, or if, to fund those types of projects.

Questions? Contact Grant Committee Chair Dane Nickols at 517-230-0381.
