Early Learning Access for All Grant Application
THE GRANT MODEL
Access for All grants offset the cost of bringing an early learning artist to your school, and range from 50-80% of the total program cost. The grant is applied as a subsidy, and the school is responsible for the remaining cost of the program (if the school is able). Schools may also choose to apply Arts Every Day and/or ESSER funds to cover their portion of the cost.
Early Learning Access for All grants seek to ensure that cost is not the prohibitive factor in a school's ability to host an Early Learning artist in their building or virtual classroom.
All Baltimore City Public Schools, July Centers, and Childcare Centers that service children ages 0-6 are eligible for Early Learning Access for All grants. Consideration will be given to whether a school has applied before and whether the school has received an award before.
We are accepting applications on a rolling basis. All applications between the 1st and the 31st of each month will receive responses by the 15th of the following month.
The Early Learning Access for All panel will meet once a month to review applications.
