On September 28, 2015, the Department announced new grants totaling more than $157 million through the CSP grant. NACSA is proud to have supported successful proposals from the Nevada, Ohio, Oregon, and South Carolina Departments of Education, and to be a partner in plans for strengthening charter school oversight and accountability in each of their respective states.
