Program Planning Grants are intended to assist local sections with their membership outreach efforts. Local sections are encouraged to be innovative in their program planning.
Applications should describe events that are being planned by the local section under an umbrella of a larger program with identifiable goals and objectives. It is not necessary that all activities have a common theme beyond encouraging local section members to participate and interact with each other.
In this program, 4 annual grants of $600-$800 each are awarded to sections submitting qualified applications. Program Planning Grants will be awarded in the spring and fall of year.
