Grants for Houghton Mifflin Products

Funding for No Child Left Behind programs is determined by the federal budget created by the U.S. President and Congress. These funds are dedicated to a certain program or “Title” of NCLB. The U.S. Department of Education distributes the funds to the states, usually on a formula basis according to the level of poverty among school children. The states distribute these funds on a formula and competitive basis. The following website links will help you understand how these funds can be used for your school.
