Section 99d Teaching Diverse Histories Grant

Section 99d of the 2023-2024 School Aid Bill provides $6,000,000.00 from the state for local districts to do both of the following:

  • develop and implement plans for professional learning concerning the teaching of the fullness of American history, including, but not limited to, the teaching of the history of communities of color and other marginalized communities, the teaching of local history, and the teaching of cultural competency.
  • the purchasing of books and other educational resources for educators and students to support the goal of teaching every middle school and high school student American history that reflects the diversity of this state, including, but not limited to, the teaching of the history of communities of color and other marginalized communities.

These funds will be distributed through a competitive grant process. The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) is soliciting proposals as described in the Section 99d Teaching Diverse Histories Grant Request for Applications (RFA).
