About this grant

This grant will provide partial support to Parents for Public Schools as the organization continues to expand and strengthen its network of parent-based chapters. The Parents for Public Schools model works to overcome barriers such as race, ethnicity, and income in order to build a broad-based organization of parents working together to improve their schools. The national office of Parents for Public Schools provides training and technical assistance to local chapters, especially those reaching out to underrepresented families.
