With funding uncertain, grants can offer an additional source of aid for educators.


Funding for education is always changing, and additional resources can be hard to come by. Many teachers even use their own money to buy classroom supplies. So where can teachers get additional financial support for their classrooms and programs?
Fortunately, there are grants and other resources available to teachers who apply. If the National Endowment for the Arts offers $1.3 million in a year, imagine what else is out there.

Here are three grants you should consider applying for in the coming year.

SRP Classroom Connections

Salt River Project (SRP) offers three types of grants to teachers in Arizona. This includes their Learning Grants, Social Studies Grants, and Powering Our Future Grants. These range in value from $250 per teacher to $5,000 per school. SRP doesn’t start accepting applications until October, which gives you plenty of time to think about how you could use the funding.

AAE Classroom Grant Application

The Association of American Educators (AAE) offers a grant for purchasing classroom materials. These grants are available to all full-time educators. The deadline is Oct. 1, so mark your calendar.

Harley-Davidson

Harley-Davidson has given away millions to fund projects around the country. If you have a big ask, this is the place to go. They only support causes in the areas they operate and, fortunately, that includes Arizona. The next deadline is Sept. 22, so get your application ready.
