GRANT OPPORTUNITY | TD Bank has issued a call for proposals from organizations with innovative solutions to address the predicted learning loss in math and reading for disproportionately impacted students in grades K-12 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Organizations can apply for grants ranging from USD $325K up to $1M which they can use over three years; TD Bank has a $10M total funding pool for this grant cycle. In terms of geographic focus, North Carolina is eligible (TD Bank has 9 branches in Western NC and 2 branches in Eastern NC; full listing found here). The deadline to submit an online application is by 4:00 p.m. EST on Thursday 8/26. TD Bank will judge the applications in September-October, notify finalists in November, and then make awards in mid-December. Here is more information.

These are the sources EdNC checks every day: The New York Times, The 74, Education Week, The NC Tribune, The Insider, The News & Observer, The Charlotte Observer, WUNC, WFAE, Brookings, Education Commission of the States, and DPI’s News.
