Grant funds will once again be available to individuals, organizations, towns, teachers and others applying under the Coginchaug Valley Education Foundation (CVEF) grants program. As a new resource, CVEF will be holding a grants Q&A workshop on Monday, April 2, 3-5 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. at the . The session will provide assistance for those going through the CVEF grants process.
So, who exactly can attend the April 2 workshop and apply for a CVEF grant? That answer is simple: any community organization, community member, school or group with an innovative idea and a plan to achieve it. Of course, Earls notes, the workshop is not required as part of the process. "It is totally to help answer questions."
The deadline for CVEF grants applications is May 1, 2012. Grants will be awarded in June. Applications are available at CVEF's website, or you may email Nancy Earls at email@example.com. CVEF has awarded 19 grants, totaling almost $30,000 over the past three years.
