Rural Education Achievement Program:
The Rural Education Achievement Program (REAP) is designed to address the unique needs of rural school districts that frequently lack the personnel and resources needed to compete effectively for Federal competitive grants and receive formula grant allocations in amounts too small to be effective in meeting their intended purpose. REAP is comprised of three parts:
• REAP-Flex, which provides flexibility to eligible rural districts to use specific Federal formula funds to support activities under an array of Federal programs in order to assist them in addressing local academic needs more effectively.
• Small, Rural School Achievement Program, which authorizes formula grant awards directly to eligible rural districts to maintain a wide range of local activities that support student achievement.
• Rural and Low-Income School Program, which authorizes formula grant awards to eligible districts to maintain a wide range of local activities that support student achievement.
