The Virginia Department of Education is now accepting applications from parents for tutoring microgrants for their children through Governor Glenn Youngkin’s K-12 Learning Acceleration Grants program. The program was created to help Virginia families address the impact of the pandemic on student learning.  

The $30 million dollar program will provide $1,500 grants to parents of school-age children for tutoring in core content areas (English reading/writing, mathematics, science and history/social science) and foreign languages required 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. 
K-12 Learning Acceleration Grants may also be used for other education services to address the impact of the pandemic on learning and student well-being, including assistive technologies and services for students with disabilities.
