Mission Statement

The LHUSD Grants Department applies for Federal and State Funds to support the District's mission by pursuing all opportunities for external funding through submission of both traditional federal and state-aid applications, as well as for new and innovative grant opportunities. The goal of the department is to seek funding to support and stimulate growth by empowering the District to develop effective instructional strategies and programs to achieve District goals.

This office is also responsible for providing assistance to the District by analyzing and interpreting Federal and State regulations and legislation pertaining to the Arizona Department of Education and the US Department of Education. Various federal, state, and private funding source applications are researched, developed, prepared, and managed, by the department through collaborative efforts with the schools throughout the district. Our office also manages and assists other departments to prepare grant applications and reports.
