Formula Grant Program

Native Education applies annually for federal funding through the Title VI Indian Education Formula Grant program that assists Native American, Alaskan Native, and American Indian students in Seattle Public Schools in grades K-12. We believe that the academic success of Native students is grounded in a strong sense of cultural identity and belonging.

We are currently doing our count and final gathering of new 506 forms. If you have not filled out forms for your students in Seattle Public schools, please download the 506 from our Parent Information webpage . When completed, please return to your school and they can send it intra-district mail to:

Native Education Program Manager
JSCEE, Mail Stop: 31-529

Great Job! Let’s keep letting parents know about the 506 forms. We need to keep increasing our numbers. Our funding goes down with each student that leaves the district or graduates.
