2021-2022 Winter-Spring National PTA Grants

National PTA offers grant funding for local PTAs who are interested in implementing a National PTA program in the areas of STEM, digital citizenship and healthy bodies. Grants are need-based to provide extra support to PTAs in running their program or making their program more accessible to all students.

Detials about the current available grants can be found below. These current grants close December 10th, 2021 at 11:59pm ET. Email Grants@PTA.org with questions about the programs, grant opportunities or the application.

 A walk through of the application process can be viewed here.

We will be hosting an Applicant Q&A on November 17th, from 7-8PM ET. You can register for this Q&A here. Please view the walk through of the application process above before attending.

You can also check out the rubric that National PTA judges will be using to score your application here.
