CSP Grant Information



The Michigan Department of Education would like to announce Round 6 of the Charter School Program Grant. The Public School Academies unit will host an informational meeting on July 27, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. - noon via ZOOM. Eligible applicants are new charter schools that have an executed contract with an authorizer, will expand 3 grades and have 3 years of positive achievement data, or replicate an existing high performing charter school at 50% on the state index.

Applications must be submitted prior to 5:00 pm on October 22, 2021. The system will not process a submission after 5:00 pm and, consequently, will not be reviewed in this round.
