SHAPE Colorado has set aside 20% of the budget to further opportunities for members to purchase school equipment and attend professional development events.  There are two types of reimbursement grant opportunities that you may apply for.  You may apply for both grants, but will only be awarded one grant every two years.  Grants are reimbursement grants.  Items must be paid for by the member up front, and then SHAPE Colorado will reimburse up to the awarded amount.
1. Professional Development Grants: Application deadlines are September 1 and January 8 of each year.
2. Equipment Grants: Application deadlines are September 1 of each year.

Rules: Applicants must be a current SHAPE Colorado member for the last 2 consecutive years to apply for a grant.  Successful applicants and applicants from the same building may not apply for another grant within two years. The Grant Committee will verify that appropriate documentation was submitted to the SHAPE Colorado Treasurer before reimbursement is rendered.  All applicants must complete the online application process. For questions about grants, please contact Terry Jones – terry@shapeco.org
