Raising the graduation rate in Colorado

Our Colorado team is proud to support the GradNation Acceleration Grant, through America’s Promise Alliance. The goal is to help raise the national high school graduation rate to 90%. The new funding supports existing state- and community-level efforts focused on accelerating progress for more young people to high school graduation and post-secondary success.

America’s Promise, along with its campaign co-conveners, conducted data analysis to identify 10 states where graduating more students would have a measurable impact on the national graduation rate and equity gaps.

Colorado is included in the 10 states that can apply for this grant. The grant will be awarded to 2 state-level and 3 community-level organizations to help them accelerate progress toward a 90% graduation rate. Selected state and community organizations will receive $250,000 and $100,000, respectively, over the 2-year grant period, which begins in 2018.

The deadline to submit applications is Wednesday, November 8, 2017.
