There is a PD Grant Fund that is available to help support local professional development events to take place. Through the PD Grant Fund the applicant may be eligible for reimbursement of up to $150.00 of PD event related expenses, for example: room rental; speaker’s fees; materials for activities; photocopying; and refreshments. Consideration will be given to size, scope, and expected audience. The PD event must be open to certification holders in the immediate vicinity. The applicant needs to be approved for eligibility to receive the PD Grant Fund prior to the event.
If you are organizing, or would like to organize a PD event for ECEs in your area contact the Director of Professional Development for more information about the PD Grant Fund at email@example.com or call (877) 579-3028.
