Teacher Mini-Grants

Our Youth Advisory Council (YAC) invites teachers to apply for mini-grants to help them out in the classroom. Whether it’s a new idea or that little extra you need to make your lesson plans great, you can brighten your classroom with help from the YAC.

Who
Public and private school teachers and counselors in Muskegon County are eligible to apply. You can only submit one application, and grants are limited to one per classroom and one per teacher per school year.

What
Grants can be up to $250 for specific projects or programs including: program enhancement that meets curriculum guidelines, expanding an already existing unit, student awards, special events, professional development, artists in residence and parent involvement programs. Grants are not awarded for basic, everyday supplies. YAC does not typically fund field trips, iPads, or school store projects.

When
Applications are due by midnight on Friday, October 7, 2016. Grant awards are distributed about six weeks after the application deadline.

How
Teacher mini-grant applications should be submitted online via our eGRANT service. An evaluation and photos will be required for each mini-grant that is funded.  Please read the instructions prior to creating your registration, or completing the application.
