ECOEA Internal Organizing Grant

ECOEA offers Internal Organizing Grants of up to $500 to local associations within the ECOEA district to be used to increase membership and engagement of the members within the local.  The activities supported by the grant should be guided by the strategic priorites of OEA–increase local capacity to be more relevant to its members, improve the image of educators and build OEA as a resource for professional issues. One important criteria for locals to apply is the election and attendance of delegates to the ECOEA Representative Assembly in the previous year. Delegate elections take place at the beginning of the school year. Be sure your local is holding delegate elections and reporting delegates to OEA before the October 15th deadline.

The link to apply for our spring grants will be posted January 1, 2025.
