What Does Each Grant Cover?
If selected for an incentive grant, the registation fee and transportation costs will be paid by CTA. Housing and all other costs will be the responsibility of the individual, the chapter, the school district, the service center council or the uniserv unit.

The Small Chapter Incentive Grant also pays for housing (based on two conference participants per room).

Please Note: Attendance at each workshop time block will be verified by CTA before payment. Full conference participation is required for transportation reimbursement. Grant recipients will be required to fill out a short questionnaire at the end of the conference.

New Member Grants will be awarded to applicants who are within their first 5 years of CTA membership.
