Public Relations Grant

Grow your local P.R. program with MNEA grant

Local associations across the state have the opportunity to implement their ideas for spreading good news about public education with a financial boost from Missouri NEA.

This year’s grant application deadline is Sept. 10. Grant winners will be notified in October. MNEA’s public relations grant program is a project of the Association’s Public Relations Committee. Grants of up to $300 are awarded for Read Across America projects and other projects that work toward the following goals:

  • Increase MNEA’s visibility in the community.
  • Build support for public education.
  • Support local association public relations efforts.
  • Improve the image of teachers.

All grant recipients will receive half of their money in the fall and the other half once they’ve completed the project and filed a project report. Grant recipients are also asked to design a means of evaluating the grant project.

For more information, contact Mark Jones at (573) 644–9609 or

Deadline: Sept. 10, 2021
