Grants of $2,000 and grants of $5,000 to USA eligible educators to address student needs in the wake of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Grant funds may be used to purchase supplies, materials, technology, and equipment.

Eligible applicants include teachers, specialized instructional support personnel, and education support professionals who are members of NEA.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NEA Foundation is providing funding to support educators responding to educational needs and concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic. All applications submitted for this funding should address how the applicant(s) would use grant funds to prepare themselves, their colleagues, their students or school community to adapt to educational challenges experienced or expected due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, for example:

  • Addressing the social and emotional needs of educators, students, and students’ families;
  • Learning new pedagogy and/or adapting curricula to support distance/virtual learning and instruction;
  • Addressing students’ learning loss resulting from extended school closures;
  • Providing educational enrichment to support student learning;
  • Strengthening educators’/schools’ engagement with families and communities to meet student needs.

Particular attention should be given to identifying and addressing pertinent educational equity and opportunity gaps exacerbated by the pandemic.

The purpose of the NEA Foundation’s COVID-19 Response - Student Success Grants is to support educator-led initiatives that increase educational equity and opportunity, responding to student needs associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Successful projects will support creativity and individuality in student learning, while clearly responding to needs that emerged or worsened during the pandemic.
