  • Grants Available for Small and Rural Locals - Deadline October 13th!

    WEA is offering several grants to Small/Rural Locals with 150 or fewer members this year. Local release time grants are only reimbursable for active WEA members. If your local is a recipient, WEA's expectation is that your local adjust the dues structure to enable continuation of the local's goals and programs. Priority is given to first-time applicants, but former grant awardees also may apply on an annual basis. Grants are not applicable for WEA or NEA Representative Assemblies.
