EDUCATOR HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
OEA Choice Trust is making available three million dollars for school districts, education service districts and community colleges to support the health and well-being of Oregon public school employees. This funding is in response to the emotional toll caused by the unprecedented challenges of COVID-19 and rising racial and political tensions. Support funding is NOT a grant and does not have to be repaid.
IS MY ORGANIZATION ELIGIBLE?
- An applicant must be an Oregon public school district, education service district or community college.
- Current and past OEA Choice Trust grantees are eligible to receive Educator Health and Well-being Support Funding.
- Only one funding award will be given to a school district, education service district or community college during the Educator Health and Well-being Support Funding period.
- Charter schools are eligible to apply if their charter school was established from an existing public school district and the entire district converted to charter school status.
“This is a critical time to strengthen and build on the remarkable resilience that already exists individually, and collectively, in education.”
