About the Illinois Impact Initiative Charter Schools Program Grant

In Fall 2022, the Illinois Network of Charter Schools (INCS) was awarded a $25 million Charter School Program (CSP) grant from the US Department of Education to catalyze the growth of high-quality public charter school options across the state. INCS will act as a pass-through entity, using federal funds to administer a competitive subgrant program for which the operators of new, expanding, and replicating schools will be eligible.

The Illinois Impact Initiative CSP grants are available for Illinois applicants who would like to:

  • open and prepare for the operation of new charter schools;
  • open and prepare for the operation of replicated high-quality charter schools; or
  • expand high-quality charter schools
