The CFAC General Grant Program is designed to provide funding of up to $500 for the implementation of educational projects for which funding may otherwise be unavailable. Proposals should result in the enhanced learning experience of students, grades Pre K-12.

Grants may be awarded to fund projects in areas such as the arts, technology, drug/alcohol awareness, environmental conservation, etc. with the following purposes:

  • To introduce an innovative method of instruction for students
  • To provide enrichment for students
  • To arrange for speakers or field trips to complement instruction for students (funding for transportation will not be considered)
  • To create resource materials for the specific instruction of students
  • To replicate a proven instructional project for students
  • To pilot an experimental but promising project that would not ordinarily be offered

Grant applications should:

  • Follow a professional presentation format
  • Contain a clear description of the project
  • Contain fully developed goals and objective
  • Align themselves with the Common Core Standards
  • Provide instruction for current students in the current year
  • State a definite time schedule for implementation from December-May

  • Describe outcomes that are consistent with the goals stated 
  • Indicate specific impact on student learning
  • Describe clear assessment methods to evaluate the success of the project

    Criteria for Judging

    Grant awards will be selected by a rating committee comprised of CFAC Board members and past Grant winners. Committee members will read and rate them according to the Narrative Requirements. All decisions of the Committee are final.


    The budget for grant funds may not exceed $500 and should clearly explain how the money will be used in the project. Examples of appropriate expenditures are: materials/supplies (i.e. paper, books, “kits,” lumber, etc.), field trips, equipment (camera, printer, etc.), guest speakers, and consultants for the project. The budget MUST match the request. Any equipment purchased through the grant program becomes the property of the organization, NOT THE INDIVIDUAL.

    Note: NYS Sales tax cannot be reimbursed. 

    Awarding of the Grant

    The grant will be paid directly to the company(s) supplying the materials and/or services. The grantee must make arrangements with the vendor(s) as to payment and shipping location. 

    CFAC Grant Showcase Agreement

    All award winners will be required to share their projects at the CFAC Showcase in June to ensure dissemination of project information throughout the Connetquot community.
