Intergenerational Poverty Interventions (IGPI) Grant

In 2014, the Utah State Legislature passed Senate Bill 43, the IGPI in Public Schools bill (sponsored by Senator Reid), which received an annual appropriation of $1,000,000 for afterschool programming. Administered through the Utah State Office of Education (USOE), 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.

The six LEAs that received this funding include:

  • American Preparatory Academy
  • Gateway Preparatory Academy

Utah Consolidated Application (UCA)

The UCA is the Utah State Board of Education’s (USBEs) Grants Management System. Utah’s goal is to provide transparent awarding to Local Education Agencies (LEAs) of some state and federal grants; aligned with LEA’s educational plans, made available to public access. This system provides a simplified LEA planning process that encourages stakeholder participation; grant application and awards; as well as reimbursement request processing. To have these tools available in one place reduces burden on both the local and state levels.
