Districts that received a Title I allocation the prior school year are deemed eligible for a Title IV grant the subsequent year. In other words, 2016-2017 districts that generated a Title I allocation and declined receiving the funds as well as districts participating in a cooperative agreement are not considered eligible to generate a Title IV allocation for school year 2017-2018.
North Dakota receives its Title IV allocation from the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) in the form of a block grant. The state then allocates 99% of these funds to North Dakota districts based on the above eligibility criteria established by the USDE. The amount of Title IV funds allocated to districts is calculated using the same formula that is used to determine district Title I allocations. The minimum allocation to any district is $10,000.
