Each year CCEF and its partners award classroom and department mini-grants to the deserving educators across Citrus County’s public schools. Teachers, departments, and Resource Centers can apply at the start of each school year for a grant up to $500 per individual teacher or $1000 per team of teachers to focus on literacy or STEM projects that enhance curriculum and classroom instructional activities.
Local funds raised by CCEF are matched dollar-for-dollar by state Department of Education funds through the Consortium of Florida Educational Foundations. Through this effort, CCEF was able to give nearly $62,000 for the 2013-14 school year, and $64,604.70 for 2014-15. CCEF is extremely proud to announce another record setting year for 2015-16, awarding over $101,000.00 in grants to 242 teachers covering 133 unique projects.
