Grant Funding Available for State & Local Affiliates
NEA’s new Safe and Just Schools grant program
As part of NEA’s response to the pandemic, funding was set aside for grants to affiliates for “initiatives and partnerships to dismantle systemic inequities and unjust education practices that hinder healthy, safe, and just learning and working environments for each and every student, educator, or public employee in their worksites and communities” – ie. projects focused on either health & safety or educational justice. Grants are available up to $75,000 and are being reviewed and turned around quickly.
To review the criteria, and to access the application, go to https://www.nea.org/resource-library/safe-and-just-schools-partnership-funding. Feel free to discuss possible grant funded projects with your NEA Zone Director first if you want guidance.
