The Arts and Foreign Language Implementation and Planning Assistance Grants program (AFL) is a joint project of the Illinois Arts Council and the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE).
This program, which began in 2006, is designed to assist Illinois public school districts, public university laboratory schools, charter schools and area vocational schools with the development, maintenance, or enhancement of curricular programs in the Arts or Foreign Language. Funding is available for up to four years; one year of program planning and three years of program implementation.
For FY2012, planning grants will range from $10,000 to $40,000 and implementation grants will be up to $75,000 each.
