The Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) is accepting grant proposals for the McKinney-Vento Summer Grant. Funds will be awarded to local educational agencies through competitive grants. The local education agencies that serve children and youth located within Arkansas will be eligible to apply on a competitive basis for grant funds to provide summer educational programs of identified homeless and other at risk students. Applicants will develop summer programs to meet the academic needs of identified students.

McKinney–Vento funds can be used to include identified homeless students in existing summer programs. If the school district does not have a summer program these funds can be used to finance a program for identified homeless students and other high risk students.

The original and three copies of the application must be received by 4:30 p.m. at the ADE on or before June 25, 2010. Please send the proposals to:

Cindy Hogue, State Homeless Coordinator

Faxed copies of the application will not be accepted.

Contact Cindy Hogue at 501-682-5615 or at for questions or additional information.
