Differentiating the 2021-2022 Non-competitive UPK Expansion Allocation from 2021-2022 Competitive Universal Prekindergarten Expansion Grant for New Full-Day Placements for Four-Year-Old Students
The 2021-2022 Universal Prekindergarten Program (UPK) Application on the Business Portal is only for a school district’s UPK allocational funding. This includes existing State-funded UPK allocations that were originally provided to school districts prior to 2021-2022 and new Federally funded UPK expansion allocations provided as of 2021-2022. As opposed to competitive grant awards, these allocational funding streams are non-competitive because they have already been assigned to each school district in accordance with a formula set forth in New York State Education Law Section 3602-E.
The recently announced 2021-2022 PreK RFP is a competitive grant program with a distinct and separate application process. Please refer to the information provided on the RFP’s announcement web page when applying for this new grant.
