Title I Funding

Title I is the largest source of federal education funding, providing over $15 billion to schools with high numbers or percentages of children living in poverty. Schools may operate a targeted program, in which services are provided to children who are failing or at risk of failing. Schools operating a schoolwide program may provide services to all students.

  • Overview
  • Intervention Programs


Distribution: Funds are distributed according to percentages of students from low-income families.Schools with more than 75% of children in poverty must receive Title I funds in ranking order. School districts have the option to lower the poverty threshold to 50% in high schools and/or serve schools with less than 75% poverty by grade span in lieu of a strict ranking order.

How the funds can be used: Schools must use the funds to help students meet state academic standards by supplementing the existing program. Among other expenses, schools may provide extra teachers, intervention programs, supplemental materials, technology, professional development, or programs to incorporate a well-rounded education.
