NEOEA funding for community involvement is considered “seed” money and full funding will not be
granted to affiliates for more than two consecutive years. It is hoped that the local affiliate
will build the activity into their local budget over that period and be prepared to continue the
program after the initial investment period.
Entries will be judged in groups to be submitted by the following dates: December 5, 2014, or May 8, 2015.
Please note: Grants are not awarded to purchase equipment or supplies normally used by local
associations to conduct routine business, to fund student or staff scholarships, to purchase instructional
materials, or to reimburse costs of internal activities.
