The AT&T Aspire HSSI RFP will provide up to $10 million to eligible organizations implementing verifiable, evidenced-based interventions to improve the retention, promotion and graduation rates of students at risk of dropping out of high school. This RFP will fund organizations seeking to expand proven programs in new locations, serve additional students in existing locations or add components to strengthen their program(s). All should serve students currently in grades 9-12 or who have dropped out of grades 9-12.
The two categories of programs include:
· Multiple Communities: A single program in multiple communities (may be in the same or different states), which can qualify for funding of up to $1 million in total for the 2014/15 and 2015/16 school years.
If there is an organization in your district that may be interested, it can review the details of the RFP at www.AspireRFP.com and complete the Pre-Qualification Survey, which will be open until January 17, 2014. The AT&T Aspire HSSI team will review and evaluate all those who complete the survey. Those respondents proceeding to the next stage will be invited to submit a full proposal and will receive additional information to complete their applications.
