Intergenerational Poverty Interventions (IGPI) Grant

Intergenerational Poverty Interventions (IGPI) Grant

In 2014, the Utah State Legislature passed Senate Bill (S.B.) 43: Intergenerational Poverty Interventions in Public Schools (sponsored by Senator Reid), which provided funding for afterschool programming. Administered through the Utah State Board of Education, individual grants were made available to Local Education Agencies (LEAs) for new or existing afterschool programs that provided targeted services for students affected by intergenerational poverty. Through a competitive application process, eleven LEAs were awarded grants.

The LEAs that received this funding include:

  • Cache School District
  • Canyons School District
  • Dual Immersion Academy
  • Entheos Academy
  • Grand County School District
  • Logan City School District
  • Murray City School District
  • Ogden School District
  • Pinnacle Canyon Academy
