Mayor Arrigo and Superintendent Kelly Announce Grant Funding Opportunities
December 4, 2018
The City of Revere’s Educational Technology Program (ETP) is now accepting online applications at http://etp.reverek12.org. The City has a long-standing agreement with local cable access providers to share a portion of operating funds the station pays to support public access programing.
Among the common use of ETP funds are for educational purposes to ensure that students that attend Revere Public Schools have access to state-of-the-art technology, community applications and equip students with technical literacy following graduation.
Any Revere organization can apply for the potential funding opportunity and benefit from the publicly funded program within the following parameter; the proposal must be for technology endeavors that relate to the cable TV system and benefit all cable TV subscribers.
“The ETP online portal will open the doors to civic participation” said Mayor Brian Arrigo. “We encourage organizations to participate in the opportunity to invest in meaningful projects that will benefit our community.”
The ETP Oversight Committee, chaired by Mayor Arrigo and Dr. Dianne Kelly, has three primary goals; facilitate community participation, improve educational opportunities, and improve city services. Meetings of the ETP Committee will be held on the 15th of February, May, August, and November each year. All proposals must be submitted 10 business days prior to a particular meeting date in order to be considered at that meeting.
