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 OASNP Public Relations Grant program is designed:

  • To support local associations in developing projects that reinforce the professional image of members serving individuals with special needs and
  • To enhance the image of education, work and life skills development for people with special needs.
  • Additionally, the project should promote a positive image of your local association within your community and prominently display the name of the local on all materials.
  • The amount of the local’s grant depends on the proposal but is limited to $250.
  • The OASNP Executive Committee will review grant applications in late fall.
