TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — A for Arizona has launched a $6 million grant opportunity today to help Arizona public schools recreate programs that provide influential results for students.

“I thank A for Arizona for their continued partnership to support kids and empower schools with resources and technical support to bring their innovative education ideas to life.”
