The Greencastle-Antrim Education Foundation is accepting applications under its 2012 Education Mini-Grants Program.  The program seeks applications from public and private school educators and non-profit 501 (c)(3) community-based organizations demonstrating innovative programming that addresses an identified educational need or challenge that faces the residents of the Greencastle-Antrim community.

This need could be met within a classroom, through an after school project or during an evening or weekend community-based program. All proposals must address educational programming for G-A community members only, but may be targeted at a specific age range, grade level, gender or other grouping.

The foundation will accept proposal requests ranging from $250 to $1,000.  The deadline for submission is Oct. 19 at 3:30 p.m.  Applications can be picked up and returned to the Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce office at 217 E. Baltimore St. Grant awards are competitive and will be based on those proposals that best meet the stated criteria. Awards will be announced on Nov. 19.
