Fall 2023 Open Door Grant Program

June 2023 Update: Legislative changes have occurred that impact the DOE department responsible for administering this grant, as well as funding available and requirements to receive the grant. We anticipate grant funds will be available for students in Fall 2023, but are not certain on amount or criteria. We will post updates to this page as we receive notifications on the future of the Open Door Grant.
