State Charter School Facilities Incentive Grants

Under this program, State grantees use Federal funds as a match against non-Federal funds that States distribute to help charter schools pay for facilities. The Department has implemented a measure to assess the efficiency of the State Charter School Facilities Incentive Grant Program by examining the ratio of funds leveraged by the States to funds awarded by the Department. The leveraging ratio is the total funds available (the federal grant and the State match) divided by the Federal grant for a specific year. In addition, grantees are required to report the number of charter schools and students served per year.

The data is broken down by the 2004 and 2009 grantees.

*Please note one of the grantees uses bond funds as its match. Since bond volumes fluctuate considerably from one year to another, the leveraging ratio for the program has fluctuated considerably as well.
