Public Relations Grant Program

Offering local grants is one of the major activities of OASNP and is a visible reminder of your dues dollars at work.  The Public Relations Grant program is designed to:

  • Support local associations in developing projects that reinforce the professional image of the members
  • Enhance the image of education, work and life skills development for the students with special needs

The amount of the local’s grant depends on the proposal, but is limited to $500.

The OASNP Executive Committee will review grant applications in late fall.
