NCSD Leads Comment Letter to Retain Critical School Diversity Funding in FY 2022 Budget

Over 70+ organizations and individuals joined NCSD’s recent letter urging Congress to retain funding for the Fostering Diverse Schools program in the FY 22 budget (following up on a similar letter we sent to Congress in April 2021).

The Fostering Diverse Schools program would provide $100 million for a voluntary grant program that states and school districts could apply for to help reduce racial and socioeconomic isolation in their schools. It is modeled after the Strength in Diversity Act, which passed the House of Representatives on a bipartisan basis in the 116th Congress.

Join us in advocating for Fostering Diverse Schools. Find some basic talking points here, and contact your legislators this week!

We also submitted a letter requesting that the House bring the Strength in Diversity Act (H.R. 729) to the floor for a vote.
