Disabilities Grant Program

What is the Disabilities Grant Program? 

The Disabilities Grant Program is a program for eligible students with disabilities in Kindergarten through 12th grade to provide an option for parents to pay tuition, fees, and some other expenses at a participating school or homeschool. 

The 2020-2021 new student application for the Disabilities Grant Program opens February 1, 2020. Applications received through the priority deadline of March 15 are not considered on a first-come, first-served basis. New student awards will be offered to eligible students selected by lottery according to the new student priorities; see the Program Overview. Students on applications received by March 15 will be entered in the lottery. The application will close June 1, 2020.

Note: Children who are placed in a nonpublic school by their parents do not have a right to receive all of the special education and related services that they would receive if enrolled in the public schools. Likewise, a private school does not have a legal obligation to provide special education and related services to students with disabilities. Parents are encouraged to select a nonpublic school carefully and to establish a plan prior to enrollment which meets their child’s educational needs.
