Grants announcements
Applications must be received by Nov. 24.
WEA is offering 30 Small/Rural Release Time Grants to locals with 150 or fewer members. This grant will cover expenses for up to 8 substitute release days for the local president or designee(s) (up to $1,500 to each local), and may be used to attend conferences, association/council meetings and WEA trainings. The grant cannot cover costs associated with the WEA or NEA Representative Assemblies. The grant is only reimbursable to active WEA members.

Priority will be given to locals that are working on a plan to increase member engagement. If your local is a recipient, WEA's expectation is that your local adjust the dues structure to enable continuation of the local's goals and programs.

Grant applications must be received by Nov. 24. Please note that applications will be reviewed as they are received.

Priority will be given to first-time applicants, however; previous recipients are encouraged to apply.

Please note that these grants are reimbursement grants. Local unions will be reimbursed for actual expenses. If you have questions, please contact Stacy Noah or Joan Fleming
