5 Americans Helping Teachers Grants
$20,000 Grants per year
Americans Helping Americans will donate up to $20,000 in grants to provide educators the ability to meet the needs of a classroom at his/her Appalachia region school. We select Educators who will use their grants to meet an unmet classroom or school need. Schools must be located within the Appalachian Region and must meet the needs of students in economically challenged areas, as reflected by the school’s publicly available financial demographic profile (at least 25% free and reduced lunch & Title I).
HOW IT WORKS
Primary applicants may be either a teacher, educator, counselor, or librarian, etc., in the PK-12 classroom, and must be full-time employee of the PK-12 schools.
