The New York City Charter School Center partnered with the SUNY Charter School Institute, the NYSED Charter School Office and the NYC DOE Office of School Design and Charter Partnerships to launch a three-part series of events for charter school board members.
Each year, the Borough Presidents’ offices and New York City Council members distribute millions of dollars in public funds through discretionary grant programs. Public schools and non-profit organizations use these grants for everything from purchasing new technology and sports equipment to refurbishing playgrounds, science labs and auditoriums.
The Charter Center held a webinar to show schools how easy it is to apply for these funds and to share examples of successful recent applications.

These resources will guide you through lottery procedures, including: the difference between a set-aside, a priority and a preference; enrollment targets and rules for using preferences and current enrollment best practices.
