The Minnesota Department of Education is preparing for the next Grow Your Own (GYO) grant competition, which will likely be posted in early November, with applications due on January 13, 2023.
Grant materials will be posted on MDE’s Competitive Grant Opportunities webpage.
MDE recommends school officials access a Grow Your Own Educator Toolkit (from New America) to find information about GYO programs from a national perspective. These resources are rich in information for those who are seeking to start up a new GYO program as well as those who have experience and are looking for ideas to strengthen design, implementation or both.
GYO Information Session set for November 10
On Thursday, November 10, from 3 to 4 p.m., MDE will provide an informational session on the FY24 Grow Your Own grant.
This is an opportunity to hear about the grant opportunity, to learn about any changes from previous years, and to ask questions.
Direct questions to Tyler Livingston (email@example.com or 651-582-8427).
