The Local Emergency Grant Program was created by a new business item at the Spring RA to assist local associations with projects of an immediate or emergency nature. Community initiatives like school district levy or bond campaigns are examples of activities that align with the intended target of these grants.
These grants should not focus on leadership development or other association building initiatives which should be addressed in a Growth and Development Grant proposal.
Grants will be awarded on an as needed basis. The grant will be a one-time award and the awarded grant will be for one year or less.
The grant will be paid on a reimbursement basis. All expenditures must be submitted on the Local Emergency Grant voucher form. The voucher will require a separate page for each proposed goal and include:
a brief narrative of the activities for the specific goal;
the date/s the activities were completed;
an itemization of the individual expenditures for goods or services for the specific goal;
the itemized cost/s of the purchased items or services;
and, an attached sheet bearing the original receipts verifying the delineated expenditures.
