In an effort to fill the need for teachers, school districts, the New Mexico Legislature, the New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED), school districts, and the education preparation programs (EPPs) across the state are trying to implement various strategies to recruit and retain teachers and teacher candidates.
NMPED is offering a competitive grant to applicants to drive innovation in thinking and practice of developing and implementing teacher recruitment of recent college graduates and professionals to the teaching profession in New Mexico.

Amount: Up to $57,000 is available.
