REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS: In-State Coalition Building and Outreach Around the Common Core State Standards

Achieve, in partnership with the Alliance for Excellent Education, Council of Chief State School Officers, and the James B. Hunt, Jr. Institute for Educational Leadership and Policy, through a grant from the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust, is launching a new opportunity to support in-state coalition building and outreach around the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The multiyear project seeks to identify, support, and advise third-party coalitions in up to six states from May 2013 through October 2015 to help ensure successful CCSS implementation and sustainability. Successful applicants will receive funding up to $200,000 per year, for three years.

Organizations or coalitions applying for the award must be from one of the following states: Alabama, Arizona, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, New Jersey, North Carolina, Tennessee, or Washington. Eligible applicants include

  • state-based coalitions that can demonstrate support for the CCSS and the college- and career-ready agenda; or
  • third-party organizations that can demonstrate support for the CCSS and the college- and career-ready agenda applying on behalf of a group of coalitions or third-party organizations in a state willing to participate in a CCSS support coalition.

Interested and qualifying coalitions/organizations should contact Achieve at with the subject line “Helmsley Charitable Trust CCSS Coalition Support Award” to learn more about and receive a copy of the Request for Proposal. Proposals are due March 15. Winning coalitions will be notified by the end of April 2013.
