California’s Chinook salmon have been losing habitat to agriculture for decades. Now, they’re getting a much-needed boost from strategically flooded fields.

Do You Have A Project In Mind And Need A Bit Of Cash To Help Make It Happen?

teacher thinkingcash

The Northern California Council Federation of Fly Fishers International (NCCFFI) is offering a series of mini-grants to teachers participating in the Classroom Aquarium Education Program (CAEP) in the San Francisco Bay Area. Funds received from these grants will be used to enhance the classroom experience of hatching trout in the classroom.

Eligibility:

Applicants must:

  • Have participated in the program in 2019
  • Be approved to receive eggs in 2020
  • Teach in San Francisco, San Mateo, Alameda, Contra Costa, Lake, Napa, Marin, Santa Cruz or Solano Counties

Types of Projects

Funds may be used for classroom materials that enhance students understanding of fish, watersheds, and/or how human actions affect fish, and be directly tied to your class study of trout. These funds are for purchasing materials only in any curriculum area including science, art, language arts or other subject areas.

NCCFFI will not fund guest speakers or transportation.

Ideal projects: Are repeatable (meaning you can use the materials more than one year) Involve others (other schools, classes, or the community at large) Use technology to reach a larger audience (videos, live casts, slide shows) Match funds from the community (but not from the teacher) Involve direct student action and involvement All decisions by IFF are final.

Amount you may request NCCFFF has about $1000 to distribute. The maximum award will be $250. Smaller requests are encouraged, as this will allow more classes to receive grants.

To apply 

Fill out this form by February 17, 2020.

Grants will be reimbursable based on actual receipts. If you receive an award letter, you may purchase items up to the dollar amount stated, submit the receipts and you will receive reimbursement.

Why Can Only Some Teachers Apply For Money?

Teachers in most counties pay a fee to attend the training workshop. The excess money collected is the source of this grant.  We are redistributing the excess funds collected back to teachers in the areas where the money was generated.

Teachers in some counties either pay nothing for the training or there are simply no workshops offered.
