What is Title I?

Title I, Part A (Title I) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESEA) provides financial assistance to local educational agencies for children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards.

The majority of Title I funds are allocated at the district level in all states, based on mathematical formulas involving the number of children eligible for Title I support and the state per-pupil cost of education. Title I funds are currently allocated through four grants: basic grants, concentration grants, targeted grants, and Education Finance Incentive Grants EFIG).
