Chapter 53 of the laws of 2016. With the adoption of the 2016-17 New York State budget, New York became the first state to accept the President’s My Brother’s Keeper challenge.
Purpose of Grant
The purpose of My Brother’s Keeper Challenge Grant is to incentivize and support school districts to accept the My Brother’s Keeper Challenge and implement a coherent research-based strategy for students to enter school ready to learn, promote mastery in reading and writing by third grade, and implement a cohesive strategy to expose and instruct students in financial literacy. Further, this short-term funding is intended to jumpstart initiatives at the district level. Ultimately, the responsibility to fund effective programming is a local responsibility and there should be no expectation of long-term Challenge Grant funding. Through this Request for Proposals (RFP) process, the New York State Education Department (NYSED) will fund grants to eligible school districts to address one or more of the following focus areas:
Getting a Healthy Start and Entering School Ready to Learn
Reading at Grade Level by Third Grade
All children should be reading at grade level on or about age 8 – the age at which reading to learn becomes essential.
Ensuring Equitable Access to High Quality Schools and Programs
Students will receive a financial literacy education and will develop, and practice personal financial management skills intended to help them achieve and maintain a lifetime of financial well-being.
Initial period: September 1, 2023, through August 31, 2024, for a four year funding cycle through August 31, 2027. Funding beyond year one will be contingent upon the State Legislature’s continued appropriation of funds.
New York State public school districts which meet the following criteria may submit individual applications:
Amount of Funding
The New York State Education Department will award up to $6,250,000 to fund grants for the 2023-2024 school year, the first year of the four-year funding cycle.
For the purposes of this funding opportunity the following are the award amounts for districts:
Original signature of District Superintendent (or designee) is required. Original signature of the District Superintendent (or designee) and school principal(s) is also required on the Statement of Assurances. NYCDOE applicants must have original signatures of the School Principal, Community School Superintendent, Executive Superintendent, and the Deputy Chancellor.
A minimum 15 percent match of the approved Challenge Grant is required. The matching requirement may be met through the district's own resources, private sources, other governmental sources, and/or in-kind services. Other State funds may be used in this match (except for State grant funds from educational opportunity programs) but may not duplicate services provided. All matching contributions must be used for activities related exclusively to the Challenge Grant project, and district accounts must be structured to reflect this contribution by the appropriate line item.
