Grants to USA statewide organizations to create centers that will encourage increased family involvement in education. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Priority areas include promoting equity, addressing COVID-19 impacts, strengthening cross-agency coordination, and engaging in evidence-based activities.

The purpose of the SFEC program is to provide financial support to organizations that provide technical assistance and training to State educational agencies (SEAs) and local educational agencies (LEAs) in the implementation and enhancement of systemic and effective family engagement policies, programs, and activities that lead to improvements in student development and academic achievement. The Secretary is authorized to award grants to statewide organizations (or consortia of such organizations) to establish SFECs that (1) carry out parent education and family engagement in education programs, and (2) provide comprehensive training and technical assistance to SEAs, LEAs, schools identified by SEAs and LEAs, organizations that support family-school partnerships, and other such programs.

For FY2022, there are four competitive preference priorities:

  • Competitive Preference Priority 1: Evidence-Based Activities
  • Competitive Preference Priority 2: Addressing the Impact of COVID-19 on Students, Educators, and Faculty
  • Competitive Preference Priority 3: Promoting Equity in Student Access to Educational Resources, and Opportunities
  • Competitive Preference Priority 4: Strengthening Cross-Agency Coordination and Community Engagement To Advance Systemic Change

For further details on each priority, see https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2021-12-20/pdf/2021-27489.pdf#page=2.
