ODE invest in REAP as a Statewide Youth Program Model

Under Oregon House Bill 2016 the Oregon Department of Education awarded REAP significant funding to increase support to culturally diverse students throughout the Portland Metro area. After a statewide competitive application process, REAP was one of only four organizations to receive funding. The grant award will be used to support existing programming and expand services to the Centennial School District and the Beaverton School District. The historic House Bill 2016 directs the Department of Education to develop and implement a statewide education plan for African American/Black students who are in early childhood through post-secondary education programs.
