About the Program


The City of Hyattsville’s Education Enrichment Grants Program is one of the ways the City is working to support our community’s public schools, students and families. Grants of up to $500 are available to fund activities that enhance or enrich the opportunities and education of students. Examples include, but are not limited to, guest speakers, field trips and materials for a special project. Applications that impact large groups of students, build ties within the community (for example, between schools and businesses), integrate the arts, and/or target low-income (Title 1), limited English proficiency (LEP), or special education needs are strongly encouraged to apply. Grants are not intended to fund items that are normally provided by Prince George’s County Public Schools, such as copier paper, staffing, etc. 

Eligibility


The grant program is open to public elementary, middle and high schools that have boundaries that include any or all of the City of Hyattsville. Those schools include Bladensburg High, Northwestern Evening High, Northwestern High, Hyattsville Middle, Nicholas Orem Middle, William Wirt Middle, Felegy Elementary, Hyattsville Elementary, Rogers Heights Elementary, Rosa Parks Elementary, and University Park Elementary. School principals, teachers, staff, students, community members and parent-teacher organizations are eligible to apply. Multiple applications can be submitted by and awarded to representatives of the same school, but for different projects.

How to Apply 

Applications must be completed and submitted to the City of Hyattsville no later than November 14, 2016. Applications will be reviewed by the City’s Education Advisory Committee and then submitted to the Mayor and Council for approval of awards. Funds will be disbursed in January and must be spent prior to the end of the 2016-2017 school year.
Applications are available here. If you have questions, or would like to pick up a printed application, please contact Jake Rollow, Education Advisory Committee Liaison, at 301-985-5031 or jrollow@hyattsville.org.
