Grants Status Update:
The Arizona Charter Schools Program (AZ CSP) completed its five-year grant cycle this past April 2014. No more grant applications will be accepted nor will any additional grants be made. The role of the AZ CSP will consist of on-site and desk monitoring of sub-grantees as well as providing technical assistance. Future funding to support startup charter schools through competitive grant applications is dependent upon US Congressional action.
