Public Education Opportunity Grants

Congress must increase federal funding for K-12 education on a long-term basis and in a targeted way in order to close education funding gaps and support students, particularly those who are Black, Indigenous, and other people of color. Congress can do this by introducing the Public Education Opportunity Grants program, which would:

  1. Provide long-overdue additional funding for schools
  2. Target the new funding to high-poverty districts
  3. Encourage engagement with community members to ensure new funding addresses the stated needs of communities
