TangerKIDS Grant Program, a program that awards grant money to schools within the communities of Tanger Outlet Centers nationwide, officially opened its call for entries within the Rehoboth Beach community.

Grant applications may be submitted between now and March 16.

Teachers and administrators from local schools K-12 may submit applications for programs and projects in which the majority of the activity will be completed between August 2018 and May 2019. Each school may submit multiple grant requests, and each will be considered separately.

The grant program was designed to satisfy the specific funding needs of local schools. Grant requests can support educational programs, equipment, special projects or specific department needs including the implementation of schoolwide programs, the rebuilding of equipment and academic materials inventories or supporting athletic or band programs.

A Tanger-appointed grant committee will review requests and select which schools will receive funding for the upcoming school year. Grants will be considered based on scope and need as illustrated on the request form. The dollars available may be split among multiple grant requests.
