There is grant money available as part of the NYS/UUP Contract and it’s available to all UUP represented employees. Awards are given in six different categories, ranging from professional development (such as the Individual Development Awards) to Affirmative Action (the Dresher Leave Program) to large project and/or multi-campus grants, otherwise known as the Campus Grants program.
Applications are still being accepted for most programs and there’s still funding to be awarded before the contract runs out in June 2016.
For more information, check out this flyer explaining the programs and what you can expect to get for your award.
If you have specific questions about the programs offered, please contact us and we’ll do our best to get you answers.
