Grant Program Website Image.pngThe purpose of the LGBTQ2SIA+ Student Success Program Grant program is to provide funds to applicants that document an understanding of the unique needs of LGBTQ2SIA+ students, have the potential to become exemplar programs, and who create collaborative practices relating to strategies outlined in the
LGBTQ2SIA+ Student Success Plan. Grant program applicants must demonstrate the outcomes of the grant activities are to benefit and serve LGBTQ2SIA+ students and their families. 

ODE works with grantees to evaluate sustainability, replicability, best practices and lessons learned from implemented projects, programs and services. The data collected and analyzed from grantees’ projects is utilized by ODE to further refine the Plan and inform effective internal agency implementation as well as external (i.e. district and community) implementation of the LGBTQ2SIA+ Student Success Plan.
