The IES panel reviewed 34 applications for the grant round, 28 of which have now been awarded. These 28 include all four priority areas and use nearly all of $108,097,139.99 million expected over 4 years to support the full costs of the grants. Approximately $23,499,963.96 million (FY23 funds) was obligated for Year 1 of the grants. Continuation grants will be awarded in subsequent years.

The grants awarded will assist states' use of data in statewide, longitudinal data systems (SLDS) to inform their efforts to improve education in critical areas. Applicants were able to apply for funds to carry out projects to address one of four priorities: 1) Infrastructure and Interoperability; 2) College and Career; 3) School Finance; and 4) State Policy Questions.  States were also asked to indicate whether they would participate in the optional CEDS Scalable Data Use Development priority.  This project would help identify and prioritize data use applications (e.g., reports, dashboards, research request tools) for statewide longitudinal data stored in or expressed in CEDS.

The project period for grants under this competition is no more than four years. This time period was determined based on the scope of activity and requirements stipulated in the Request for Applications.
