2020 Grants: COVID-19 Response

As a response to the sudden closure of schools as a result of Covid-19, grant requests were accepted for teachers seeking urgent funding for distance learning and/or other urgent personal expenses. Must have a teacher identifiable valid email address, be listed on a school directory, and have an urgent need related to the effects of Covid19. Individual grants were available up to $500 per eligible teacher. Grants will be approved on a rolling basis. You will be notified if you are approved for a grant. Eligible personal expenses include funds needed for urgent basic needs or other family assistance.
