Mckinney-Vento Bidders Conferences


The Department is hosting bidders conferences in March and April to learn more about the McKinney-Vento competitive grant opportunity. These sessions are designed to give interested and eligible districts the chance to get familiar with the grant, and ask questions regarding the grant opportunity. This will give staff a better understanding if their district is interested in seeking out the grant and also if their district has the capacity to complete the work.

Bidders Conference Sessions are:

  • March 15 - Sawmill Creek Resort, 400 Sawmill Creek Drive, Huron/Sandusky
  • March 29 - Roberts Conference Center, 123 Gano Road, Wilmington
  • April 10 - Mid-Ohio Conference Center, 890 West Fourth Street, STE. 100, Mansfield

Those interested may sign up for a bidders conference session in the STARS registration system through a SAFE account. Registrants may choose either a morning session from 10 a.m. to noon or an afternoon session from 2-4 p.m. at each location and date.

The grant application opens on April 11 and closes May 19 through the Comprehensive Continuous Improvement Plan (CCIP).
