Grants & Funding – Grant Planning Guide

This Grant Planning Guide will help your district coordinate in advance of Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) funds. This Guide outlines how SSAE is described under ESSA.

The Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grant (SSAE) consolidates multiple federal grants into one new program.

What can be funded? SSAE has three categories of allowable activities:

  • Well-rounded educational opportunities
  • Safe and healthy students
  • Effective use of technology

  • Within these three areas, funds may be used for direct services for students, professional development, salaries for personnel to carry out activities, and supplemental educational resources and equipment.
