The Council of Intown Neighborhoods and Schools (CINS) grants provide an opportunity for teachers and staff in the Grady cluster to apply for funds to enhance the learning environments of students in their classrooms and schools. These funds are designed to supplement, not replace, funding from the Atlanta Public Schools.

Grants support innovative educational efforts. These may include creative classroom projects, teacher enrichment, guest speakers or performers, field trips, and innovative materials or equipment. They range from a minimum of $150 to a maximum of $500 for an individual applicant or $1,200 for two or more applicants in collaboration. Please limit proposals to these amounts, or indicate where you will get any additional funds needed.

The strongest proposals offer strategies that further the school's mission and show a high degree of promise for effectiveness and reproducibility. CINS also gives new proposals priority over previously funded projects, although the latter are eligible as long as reporting requirements were met.

In honor of Dr. Adelia Hall, and to keep alive the spirit of discipline-based arts education, each year CINS designates one grant that integrates arts into the curriculum as the Adelia Hall Arts Grant.

Grant recipients are required to complete a written final report, attaching receipts for all purchases of $20 or more, and are encouraged to present or arrange for a brief presentation on their project at the CINS grants showcase meeting in May. Reports are due on the date of the May CINS meeting. Failure to comply with grant requirements will disqualify all teachers named as recipients of the grant from reconsideration for a CINS grant for three years.

The grant application is available below in .rtf format. [Download it here.] It is also available from your school principal or your school's CINS representative.

You may print out the application and either 1) submit a hard copy or 2) e-mail your application.
The completed application is due at 8am the Friday after Labor Day. If you submit a hard copy, it must be turned into the principal's office at your school by that time. If you e-mail your application, send it to by that time.

Award notifications will be sent out in early October.
