CONCORD, N.H. – New Hampshire Department of Education commissioner Frank Edelblut announced today that $1.5 million in unused Title I and Title II funds are being sent back to New Hampshire school districts.

Over 100 projects across the state are receiving the unused funding following the announcement.

“I understand that sometimes school districts are not always able to use every dollar of federal grants before they expire. This reallocation sends this money back to New Hampshire schools,” Edelblut explained. “Before we ask taxpayers to pay more, we should always make sure we are making the best use of money they have already provided.”

Earlier this month, Edelblut announced an agreement with the federal Department of Education to reallocate $10.3 million in special education grants. Today’s announcement includes an additional $1.5 million in unused federal funds from previously-awarded Title I and Title II grants.

$120,506 of the Title II funding will go toward a consultant and summer reading program materials in Manchester.
