CSI Grant Opportunities

Below is a list of grants to support schools identified for Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) under ESSA. For more grant opportunities, visit DPI’s Competitive Grant Inventory.

2021-22 CSI Implementation Grant

CSI Implementation Grants provide funds to public school districts to assist schools that have been identified for CSI under ESSA as they implement the evidence-based improvement strategies in their improvement plans. Districts may use these funds for salaries, fringe benefits, professional development, purchased services, supplies for implementation and stakeholder meetings, or other expenses related to implementation of school improvement plans.

Eligibility

All Wisconsin public school districts with one or more schools identified for CSI are eligible.

Available Funds

Allocations are based on a formula. Budgeting for each improvement strategy in each school is separate, and funds are available for budgeting as strategies are approved, so if a particular strategy needs revisions, it will not delay budgeting and budget approval for others. 2021-22 allocations, based on 2020-21 enrollment data, are listed in the document below, along with an explanation of the allocation formula.

Guidelines and Application

Improvement plans must be submitted in WISEgrants by the appropriate deadline. No separate application is required.
