Virginia families may be interested in applying for a grant from the Virginia Department of Education’s K-12 Learning Acceleration Grants program. The program was developed to address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on students.
The program provides funds ranging from $1,500 – $3,000 that families can access for tutoring, therapies and assistive technologies. Therapies can include speech-language pathology, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and BCBA services. Assistive technologies can include products designed to assist with vision, hearing, speaking, communication and access to educational materials and instruction.
Parents of eligible children can apply for a grant directly via the VDOE website. A total of $30 million in funding is available, according to VDOE.
