Grants Created with Sketch.


Grants can be a significant source of funding for PA/PTAs, particularly for special projects or certain programs. They require a plan for how the funds will be spent, and someone to put that and other required information into an application. Fortunately, many of the grants available to schools are straightforward and first-time grantwriters can be successful. The first step is understanding the process, which includes:

  • picking the right project
  • engaging the right people
  • researching potential grant opportunities
  • writing, editing and submitting your proposal
  • following up on your grant submission
