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 received an annual appropriation of $1,000,000 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, six LEAs were awarded grants ranging from approximately $34,000 to $303,000.

The eight LEAs that received this funding include:

  • American Preparatory Academy
  • Canyons School District
  • Entheos Academy
  • Grand School District
  • Guadalupe School
  • Logan School District
  • Ogden School District
  • Provo School District
