What is a Dessemination Grant?

Dissemination grants are provided for under the Charter Schools Program (CSP). The CSP was originally authorized in 1994 under Title X, Part C of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. State Education Agencies may use CSP funds to award subgrants to charter schools in the State. Dissemination grants are awarded to charter schools to support activities that help open new public schools or share the lessons learned by charter schools with other public schools.
