Mini Grants Available

Here is an opportunity to get a small grant for the 2017/18 school year.

Established by children’s book author and illustrator Ezra Jack Keats, the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation is accepting applications from public schools and public libraries anywhere in the United States and its territories for its mini-grants program.

The program is intended to support projects that foster creative expression, collaboration, and interaction with a diverse community. To that end, the  program will award grants of up to $500 to educators in support of special activities and events for their students outside the standard curriculum. Projects funded in the past include murals, pen pal groups, quilts, theater productions, newspapers and other publications, inter-generational activities, and programs that bring disparate communities together.

Public schools and public libraries are eligible to apply. Preschool head start programs also are eligible. Private and parochial schools and charter schools  are ineligible.
