The Maryland State Department of Education provides annual grants to non-profit organizations to provide enriching educational programs that cannot be replicated in the classroom. Collectively, these programs are known as the State Aided Educational Institutions Program (SAI). The organizations provide engaging, hands-on, experiential learning opportunities that support the State's curricular and educational goals and priorities.
Presently, fifty-six programs are funded across the State. Monitoring of the SAI programs includes on-site visits by MSDE staff, a mid-year progress report, a final program report that verifies services provided, and a telephone/email audit of end users.
