Welcome to the OEA Affiliate Grants Application Web Site

The OEA Affiliate Grant Program was created in 2003 to build strong and effective locals. The Program makes grants available to all local OEA affiliates - whether a large local, a small local, or a cluster of locals. To be eligible for a grant, the affiliate must provide a statement of how its program will strengthen the Association at the local, state, and/or national level.

There are four (4) types of grants available -

  1. One Year Grant - available every year 
  2. Two Year Grant - available even number years only, must apply in odd numbered years. (see example below) 
  3. Effective Locals Grant (see example below) 
  4. Release Time Grant

(2, 3 Example; 2010-2012 grant applications taken in 2009-2010 fiscal year)

Please see About the Grants to determine which one is best for your affiliate.
