We know that some of you have Tier 1 or 2 staff who are eager to begin their licensure program with funding from this grant. At this time, Resource Training & Solutions is finalizing grant terms and waiting for the official grant award notification. Once we are ready to begin distributing scholarships, more information will be communicated.

If you were not a partner in the original grant, it is our understanding there will be a process to add your district to this grant, however, details on that process are yet to be determined.
