The TangerKIDS Grant Program has opened its call for entries in the High Country.

The program is an initiative designed to award grant money to schools within the communities of Tanger Outlet Centers.

Each year, more than $200,000 in individual grants is awarded through the program nationally.

Funding can go toward any specific needs of local schools.

Grant applications must be submitted by March 15th, and each school can submit multiple requests that will each be considered separately.
