VDOE K-12 Learning Acceleration Grants

  • At the beginning of May 2023,  the Virginia Department of Education announced they are now accepting applications from parents for tutoring microgrants for their children. The K-12 Learning Acceleration Grants program offers $1,500 grants to parents of school-age tutoring in English, mathematics, science, and history, as well as foreign languages needed to meet diploma requirements. Children from homes with family incomes at 300% or less of the federal poverty level may qualify for $3,000 grants. Grants may also be used for support services such as speech language pathology and reading interventions.


    The first step in the process is to visit the VDOE website and create an application account here.


    Please note that once applications are received and approved, parents will be able to log into a "digital wallet" to select from pre-approved tutors. All grant payments will be issued directly by the VDOE to tutors. Parents must spend at least $750 by August 15.
