NEWS: SCHOOL BUS FUNDING AVAILABLE
The Friends of Heinz Refuge (FOHR) are excited to announce that
we have created a new Field Trip Busing Grant Program through
which area teachers and schools may request funding assistance to cover
some or all of the busing costs associated with student field trips.
Beginning with the commencement of the school year 2014-2015,
we invite area teachers to download the the application. After the form has been
completed, including all the required signatures, it can be submitted to
us either by mail: PO Box 333, Folcroft, PA 19032-0333 (Attention
Education Committee), or through our website email Ė
firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that part of the application process requires teachers to contact the refuge
Erika_scarborough@fws.gov for additional instructions and to reserve
their trip date.
Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, and must be
submitted at least 6 weeks prior to the anticipated field trip date.
Maximum funding will be $200.00 per school, per year. FOHRís
education committee will meet monthly and will review all submitted
applications then, with notice of grant approvals being sent immediately after approval.
