HEF will be providing proposal development support hours this year.
2020-2021 Grant Cycle Open Now!
HEF Innovative Educator Grant Program awards grants annually to Harrisonburg City educators who design educationally innovative programs which increase student motivation while meeting our diverse students’ needs.
This year, with inspiration from our superintendent, HEF will prioritize grants that Integrate the Arts in the Core Areas. We know many students are motivated by their participation in the Arts and during a time of pandemic education, we want to make sure those experiences are not lost but even enhanced. The Arts also lends itself to social emotional learning during a challenging time for students and families. We also hope that the call of this grant theme will encourage educators to form meaningful partnerships with each other to support student learning.
HEF may give priority for proposals with an Arts Integration focus but will also consider other innovate proposals as in previous years. Grants requests should be between $500 and $5,000.
HEF requests proposals by Oct 30, 2020.
