CTA Community Engagement Department projects and grants are available to local chapters. CTA Community Engagement has partnered with the California Endowment on an array of programs that can be used by local chapters and their communities. Research shows that healthy kids miss fewer days of school, are more attentive in class and do better academically.
CTA Community Engagement projects are available statewide through CTA and NEA's Public Engagement Project. The Public Engagement Project is a NEA-sponsored activity aimed at closing achievement gaps through community conversations and actions.
Community Engagement Grants
CTA Community Engagement helps locals develop partnerships through chapter project grants. These grants vary in size and scope depending on the needs of the local and its community. Chapters can access these grants through their primary contact staff and/or community engagement consultant.
