Grant Description
Grants to Connecticut nonprofit organizations, schools, and government agencies in eligible locations for creative and innovative educational projects. Funding is intended for activities and projects that enrich the learning experience, increase skills and knowledge, and expand students' perspectives. Projects must take place in Granby and surrounding towns.

The program's goal is to encourage educators, within the local schools and throughout the community, to find new ways to make learning dynamic and challenging, both for themselves and for their students.

Grants may be used for educational initiatives that fall outside existing budgets, such as:

  • Visiting authors and guest speakers
  • Seed money to help launch innovative new programs
  • Educational materials and equipment which support innovative programming

The GEF funds programs that:

  • Illustrate innovation and creativity,
  • Enrich educational offerings; and
  • Offer unique learning opportunities.

In addition, grant proposals should:

  • Have a clearly defined action plan,
  • Provide appropriate evaluation criteria; and
  • Demonstrate a breadth of impact.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
Grant Proposals are welcome from any Granby nonprofit organization. Applicants that are not affiliated with a nonprofit organization are requested to contact the GEF. The GEF has awarded grants to schools, town departments, and numerous nonprofit organizations.

Grants are not intended to replace or relieve the existing responsibility for public funding of school programs, nor are they intended to replace regular budget growth and maintenance.

Grants do not cover field trips or salaries, stipends, or professional development costs for non-profit employees and volunteers.

Pre-Application Information
Grants will be reviewed and awarded on a rolling basis from September 1 to May 31.

Notifications will be sent within 30 days.


Estimated Size of Grant
While proposals are accepted for any amount, previous awards have ranged from $150 to $12,000.
