October 11, 2021 – DHC’s longtime client, The Center for Educational Innovation (CEI), was awarded a highly competitive five-year Assistance for Arts Education award of $6 Million from the Department of Education (DOE).

CEI will use the funding to train teachers in utilizing arts-based instructional strategies to directly teach ELA and Math and strengthen SEL skills. CEI will be working directly with over 400 teachers of students with developmental differences in grades K-2 in NYC School District 75 and K-5 teachers in a national cohort across five states.

DHC’s Government Relations Washington, D.C. office team, Jonathan McCollum and Jake Roach worked with CEI helping to to identify the funding opportunity, build support for CEI’s proposal, secure letters of recommendations from key Members of Congress and advocate for their proposal.
