Transportation Grants

IAMLA School Bus Grant Program

The IAMLA School Bus Grant Program, supported by the generous contributions of community members, is designed to support students and educators by facilitating transportation to the IAMLA.

This program provides funding to assist with the underwriting of one school bus or similar form of transportation. It is awarded using a lottery system but priority is given to Title I schools and those where 50 percent of students receive free or reduced lunch.

The goal of the program is to ensure students have the opportunity to participate in educational visits and access experiential learning opportunities.
