Rural Education Fund

Program Overview

The Rural Education Fund (REF) provides traditional public schools, charter schools, and school districts located in counties with 35,000 or fewer residents access to grants and capacity-builting opportunities help drive student outcomes. The Rural Education Fund is made possible through the purchase of the “Educator” and “Support Education” license plates by Georgia resident, along with the support of an anonymous family foundation. The GFPE supports educational excellence for all of Georgia’s K-12 students.

For questions regarding the Rural Education Fund, please contact Jaclyn Colona at or 404-445-9828.
