(previously called: Heritage Language Teaching Program)
This program provides financial assistance to SAIL member schools and multilingual organizations to help offset the costs of operating community-based heritage language schools. Language schools are expected to provide 70 hours of instruction to students over the course of a regular school year (typically from September to May/June). Classes must be held in a public facility, i.e. - school operated by a board of education, a church, library, etc. No funding will be provided for schools who teach in private homes.
