MI CLASSROOM HEROES GRANT
On December 29, 2020, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed Public Act 257 of 2020, providing $2.5 million to GSRP, Head Start, special education for individuals aged 18-26 and adult education teachers who teach in a school district or nonprofit nonpublic school. This program provides grants to eligible classroom teachers and teacher assistants in a district or nonprofit nonpublic school for time spent outside of normal working hours and for additional costs classroom teachers have incurred or experienced to provide a continuity of learning during the period of school closure in 2019-2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Grants made to eligible teachers under this section shall be up to $500 per full-time equated eligible teacher.
Based on the criteria we were given, SLPS identified which employees may be eligible and these individuals have been informed via email with instructions and the required form (Teacher Certification Form 5741). The completed form must be returned to Kim Conroy at email@example.com no later than April 9, 2021. DO NOT send Teacher Certification Form 5741 to the Michigan Department of Treasury as it will not be processed. All submissions must be sent from SLPS for processing along with additional information they require from our agency.
If you did not receive the email and believe you are eligible for this grant, please email your appeal stating why you believe you are eligible to Kim Conroy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
