ESEA Consolidated Grant Application
The Consolidated Grant Application (CGA) launched last spring. LEAs apply and process claims for seven Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) programs through the CGA.
ESEA Title Programs
Below are the ESEA Title programs included in the CGA. To prepare your LEA's application, review the list of EGMS application forms by program area. Most of these forms are similar to prior year grant application pages in iGrants.
Title I, Part A: Closing Educational Achievement Gaps
Title I, Part A: Closing Educational Achievement Gaps is a federal program designed to provide customized instruction and curricula that help students meet academic standards.
- Instructions to Complete the Title I A, Subpart 1 Form in EGMS (Beginning on page 39)

- Title I, Part A Fiscal Handbook (includes guidance on allowable costs).
Title I, Part C: Migrant Education Program
The Washington State Migrant Education Program (MEP) is federally funded to ensure high-quality education programs and supplemental support services for migratory children. Migratory families often have trouble receiving continuous, high-quality educational services because of their high rate of mobility, cultural and language barriers, social isolation, health-related problems, disruption of their children’s education, and the lack of resources in the areas in which they live and work.
Title I, Part D: Institutional Education (Subparts 1 and 2)
Washington state provides K–12 basic education services to incarcerated and previously incarcerated juveniles. The goal is to provide these students the opportunity to meet the same learning standards that all children in the state are expected to meet.

In addition, the purpose of Title II, Part A is to increase the academic achievement of all students by helping schools and districts improve teacher and principal quality.
- Instructions to Complete the Title II, Part A Forms in EGMS

Title V, Part B: Rural Education Initiative (Subpart 1/REAP and Subpart 2/RLIS)
