Expanding Opportunities Through Quality Charter Schools
Program (CSP) Grants to State Entities
FY2018 Awards Page Link
Federal CSP Program Description
The CSP State Entities program is newly authorized under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA),
as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) (20 U.S.C. 7221-7221j). Prior to enactment of the ESSA, the ESEA,
as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB), authorized the Secretary to make awards to State
educational agencies to enable them to conduct charter school subgrant programs in their States. The CSP State Entities
program is under new law and has different eligibility requirements, priorities, definitions, application requirements, and
selection criteria.
The major purposes of the CSP are to expand opportunities for all students, particularly traditionally underserved
students, to attend charter schools and meet challenging State academic standards; provide financial assistance for the
planning, program design, and initial implementation of public charter schools; increase the number of high-quality
charter schools available to students across the United States; evaluate the impact of charter schools on student
achievement, families, and communities; share best practices between charter schools and other public schools;
encourage States to provide facilities support to charter schools; and support efforts to strengthen the charter school
authorizing process.
The CSP grants to State Entities (CFDA number 84.282A) is a competitive grant program that enables State entities to
award subgrants to eligible applicants in their State to open and prepare for the operation of new charter schools and to
replicate and expand high-quality charter schools. Grant funds may also be used by the State entity to provide technical
assistance to eligible applicants and authorized public chartering agencies in opening and preparing for the operation of
new charter schools, or replicating or expanding high-quality charter schools; and to work with authorized public
chartering agencies to improve authorizing quality, including developing capacity for, and conducting, fiscal oversight
and auditing of charter schools.

  • 19. Federal CSP Program Description The CSP State Entities program is newly authorized under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) (20 U.S.C. 7221-7221j). Prior to enactment of the ESSA, the ESEA, as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB), authorized the Secretary to make awards to State educational agencies to enable them to conduct charter school subgrant programs in their States. The CSP State Entities program is under new law and has different eligibility requirements, priorities, definitions, application requirements, and selection criteria. The major purposes of the CSP are to expand opportunities for all students, particularly traditionally underserved students, to attend charter schools and meet challenging State academic standards; provide financial assistance for the planning, program design, and initial implementation of public charter schools; increase the number of high-quality charter schools available to students across the United States; evaluate the impact of charter schools on student achievement, families, and communities; share best practices between charter schools and other public schools; encourage States to provide facilities support to charter schools; and support efforts to strengthen the charter school authorizing process. The CSP grants to State Entities (CFDA number 84.282A) is a competitive grant program that enables State entities to award subgrants to eligible applicants in their State to open and prepare for the operation of new charter schools and to replicate and expand high-quality charter schools. Grant funds may also be used by the State entity to provide technical assistance to eligible applicants and authorized public chartering agencies in opening and preparing for the operation of new charter schools, or replicating or expanding high-quality charter schools; and to work with authorized public chartering agencies to improve authorizing quality, including developing capacity for, and conducting, fiscal oversight and auditing of charter schools.
