The U.S. Department of Education awarded four continuation Consortium Incentive Grants (CIGs) to 33 participating States. The CIG program provides financial incentives to SEAs to improve the interstate or intrastate coordination of migrant education programs by addressing key academic needs of migratory children who have their education interrupted. The Georgia Migrant Education Program (GaMEP) has participated in three of the four funded CIG programs since 2015.
