INDIANAPOLIS — Schools across Indiana, including higher education, will have access to a $61 million grant to help with remote learning.

The money came to the state through the CARES Act and will be available to help in three areas:

  • Device Availability – Address the need for access to digital learning devices to support remote learning for students in PK-12.
  • Connectivity – Develop comprehensive community-level and regional-level solutions to address gaps in internet connectivity for remote learning.
  • Educator Capacity – Support partnerships between higher education and PK-12 to develop professional development and curriculum opportunities as educators throughout Indiana continue to build expertise in remote learning.

Traditional public school corporations, public charter schools, accredited non-public schools, higher education institutions, and other education-related entities are able to apply.
