$250.00 Compact IDEA Grant Application
Compact Grants are for small projects up to $250.00 and will be randomly drawn.

Important: You may submit a project proposal in more than one IDEA Grant category, as long as they are not the same project. If you receive a grant in any category, any additional proposal you have submitted will be removed. Educators who received a Compact IDEA Grant in 2018-2019 are not eligible for a Compact IDEA Grant during this distribution cycle.
  • This grant is open to all Professional Licensed Educators and Professional Licensed Support personnel (ie. speech pathologist, social worker) in Unit 4 or District 116 (as designated by the Illinois State Board of Education). All qualifying Compact Grant applications will be put into a drawing where names will be randomly selected. Please note, this is a reimbursement grant, meaning you will need to spend the money and submit receipts to CUSF for reimbursement. This is how we insure accountability to our donors.
