The North Carolina General Assembly has appropriated $13,000,000.00 to support programs and initiatives that target students at risk of dropping out of school. The North Carolina Committee on Dropout Prevention (NCCDP) has been charged by the General Assembly with awarding grants for innovative programs and initiatives that demonstrate the potential to be developed into effective, sustainable, and replicable dropout prevention and re-entry programs in middle schools and high schools.

Grants may vary in amounts up to a maximum of $175,000.00. Grants will be geographically distributed throughout the State and the eight education regions. No more than three grants shall be awarded in any one county in a single fiscal year.
