FOGH Grant program
The grant program hopes to occupy the gap between Miami-Dade County Public School resources and the Parent Teacher Student Association’s mini-grants that keep the school maintained. Its most significant project includes the school’s renovation that is currently underway, of which they are a main campaigner. Because of FOGH’s advocacy, Gables and MDCPS has raised the construction budget from 11 million dollars to an impressive 30 million dollars.
