East Central Ohio Education Association Public Relations Grant
Got a great idea for your members to connect with the community? Need some start-up funds for a special project that will promote your local in the community? Apply for a $500 Public Relations Grant ! ECOEA offers Public Relations Grants of up to $500. To be eligible to apply, your local had to elect and send delegates to the ECOEA Rep Assembly last year.
Be sure to elect and send delegates every year to the ECOEA and OEA Representative Assemblies so your local will be eligible for ECOEA PR Grants! Presidents of locals that are eligible to apply have been notified. The deadline to apply is November 1, 2023. The grant is competitive; locals are encouraged to submit their most complete proposal for consideration. You can read the application at this link: https://form.jotform.com/231435170685153
We anticipate that we will only be offering the PR Grants in the Fall this year (no round of grants in the spring). Please apply by November 1, 2023, if your local is eligible.
