INSTRUCTIONAL STAFF APPEAL FORM
The Michigan Department of Treasury is proud to announce the expansion of the MI Classroom Heroes COVID-19 Grants to include a new grant program for specific program teachers. Under the latest grant opportunity, eligible Great Start Readiness Program (GRSP), Head Start, adult education and young adult (ages 18-26) special education teachers can receive a grant of up to $500. A supplemental signed by Governor Whitmer at the end of 2020 provides $2.5 million for the grant program.
To help combat the spread of COVID-19, Governor Whitmer on April 2, 2020, signed an executive order that suspended in-person instruction of students and provided limited and temporary relief from certain requirements so instruction could continue through alternative methods during the public health crisis.
The GRSP, Head Start, Adult Education, and Young Adult Special Education COVID-19 Teacher Grant Program was created in state law to recognize the additional time and additional costs specific program teachers in a school district or nonprofit nonpublic school spent to ensure learning continued when in-person instruction was suspended in last spring. Full-time and part-time specific program teachers in a school district or nonprofit nonpublic school classroom during the 2019-2020 school year prior to the suspension of in-class activities are eligible.
To receive up to $500, specific program teachers must have performed at least of 75% of their standard instruction workload in brick-and-mortar classrooms during the last school year prior to the suspension of in-person instruction on April 2, 2020.The state Treasury Department will be working directly with districts, nonprofit nonpublic schools, and other partners in the education community to implement this grant program and distribute grant dollars to recipients.
