PTA Mini-Grants

First semester deadline: In the PTA box before the second Tuesday in November
Second semester deadline: In the PTA box before the second Tuesday in February

The Mini-Grant budget for the school year is approximately $2,500 per semester. However, once allocated funds are depleted, no more applications are accepted. If funds remain after the February deadline, requests for mini-grants will be accepted through May, or until the funds are depleted. Each applicant can only submit one application per school year. You may contact the PTA Mini-Grant Program Chair if you have any questions.

The purpose of the Mini-Grants is to support and enhance the learning experience and improve the school climate at Claremont Middle School. The program provides financial assistance to ensure the success of those educational experiences that build a sense of community and support the school.

Program Chair for 2017-18 is Michele Rabkin (michelerab@gmail.com)

Because Mini-Grants are paid out of the current year’s PTA budget, requests for reimbursement or direct payment must be submitted by June 1, so the PTA can close out its books by the end of the fiscal year.

Application Process

To apply for a Mini-Grant, download the Mini-Grant Application Form, which is a fillable PDF that can be filled out on your computer before printing, or printed first and filled in by hand.
