Awards & Grants

Throughout the year, National PTA offers awards or grants to honor or support PTAs as they: engage families, support student success, improve health and safety of students and families, increase access to arts education or celebrate advocacy and diversity.

Mary Lou Anderson Grants
The National PTA Mary Lou Anderson Reflections Arts Enhancement Grant provides $1,000 in matching funds to support local PTA arts projects within their school community. Funded projects will increase access to learning opportunities in the literacy, media, visual and/or performing arts for at-risk or under-served audiences. Arts projects must actively engage families and community partners to strengthen family-school partnerships. Applications will be available in January 2018.

Jan Harp Domene Award
The purpose of the Jan Harp Domene Diversity and Inclusion Award is to recognize PTAs that are dedicated to the needs of all families represented in their schools. The award acknowledges PTAs that develop practices that are inclusive and equal for all families and that result in the positive change. Applications will be available in January 2018.
