Promoting Educational Opportunity in New England
State Initiative Letter
The focus for the competition is on initiatives that build relationships with members of Congress, and raise awareness of TRIO in new arenas. This is a critical year in which to make strategic use of these funds. Priority will be given to those proposals that make contributions in these areas.
NEOA identifies seven major State Initiative goals:
The NEOA State Initiatives awards will be made to state associations and individual projects in order to facilitate new or existing state advocacy activities. Individual projects should coordinate with the state association, where possible, when proposing an activity. The awards are intended to directly support the proposed activity, but can include necessary related food and transportation costs.
Funding levels will be determined by the needs of the project and the annual appropriation in the NEOA operating budget. Funds are normally made available in grants up to $500. per activity, but can be proposed in larger amounts, as needed depending upon the activity. NEOA State Initiative grant funds will be awarded on a rolling basis beginning immediately through the NEOA operating year, as funds allow. Funds are normally made available on a reimbursement basis, with the submission of detailed receipts to the NEOA Treasurer and Advocacy Chair.
Please submit grant proposals as soon as possible, and no later than August 1, 2024 for summer activities. Requests for reimbursement must be made before the end of the NEOA budget year, which is August 31, 2024.
For more information, please contact
Sarah Morrell, Chair, NEOA Advocacy/State Initiatives, at 774-644-5943 or email@example.com.
We look forward to your involvement!
