Hi everyone…please note that Borough Presidents and NYC Council Members have capital funding grant application open.
If you have time to reach out to a council member to your school, do so soon. It’s best to develop a relationship ahead of time. Same with the borough president. There is typically a liaison who can visit and chat with the school team. MANY SCHOOLS DO NOT APPLY FOR FUNDING. And schools should. This is where they can get significant financial support for major projects.
Most council members use a similar application format, but some have additional requirements, so do reach out. Same for borough presidents…similar forms but also additional requirements. So be sure to check.
Please also be alert to discretionary grant funding, as well. Note that schools do not have to fill out the long applications required for capital and discretionary grants.
