Intergenerational Poverty Interventions (IGPI) Grant

In 2014, the Utah State Legislature passed Senate Bill (S.B.) 43: Intergenerational Poverty Interventions in Public Schools (sponsored by Senator Reid), which provided funding for afterschool programming. Administered through the Utah State Board of Education, individual grants were made available to Local Education Agencies (LEAs) for new or existing afterschool programs that provided targeted services for students affected by intergenerational poverty. Through a competitive application process, eleven LEAs were awarded grants.

The LEAs that received this funding include:

  • American Preparatory Academy (APA)
  • Cache School District
  • Canyons School District
  • Davis School District
  • Entheos Academy
  • Grand School District
  • Granite School District
  • Guadalupe School
  • Ogden School District
  • Pinnacle Canyon
  • Provo School District
