High-Impact Tutoring Program Grants

The HITP exists to provide grants to local education providers to implement high-impact tutoring programs prioritizing rural, low-income or underserved students to address student learning loss or unfinished learning resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. The Colorado Department of Education is now accepting applications from local education providers for the High-Impact Tutoring Program Grant.

Eligible Providers:

  • A School District;
    • A non-charter school may not submit a standalone application outside of their district.
  • A Board of Cooperative Services (BOCES);
  • A Charter School authorized by a School District;
  • A Charter School authorized by the Charter School Institute;
  • A Facility School; or
  • The Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind

Priority Considerations Data

Where available, CDE has compiled data around the priority considerations to best support LEPs with the submission process. The compiled data is available here.

Funding Request Limits:

LEPs are invited to submit applications that budget up to a maximum of $2,200 per student served by the program per full school year. This maximum is based on ensuring that all students experience a tutoring program meeting all the elements of research-based, high-quality, high-impact tutoring programs. CDE expects that the cost per student served during the 2021-2022 school year will be below this amount due to the timing of this grant.
