We offer two types of grants:
- Planning Grants are available for high-quality, tuition-free charter operators interested in expanding their positive impact to serve Clark County students and families. We also accept applications for founding school teams who have a clear vision and strategic plan to launch a school within neighborhoods that need more access the most.
- Year 0 Grants are for public charter schools that have already received authorization and are preparing to launch a school within Clark County neighborhoods that need access the most. Year 0 grants offset the one-time start-up costs required to launch new schools or to transform under-performing schools to high-performing ones.
