OEA Choice Trust offers two types of grants to support Oregon School Employee Wellness programs. The first is a 3-5 year grant, the Education Employee Well-being (EEW) Grant. The second is Mini Grants, a short term grant that can be used to sustain an established SEW program. A third funding opportunity is rapid response funding, which is not a grant, and will be offered through March 2022.

Formerly the School Employee Wellness (SEW) Grant, the Education Employee Well-being (EEW) Grant provides up to $100,000 over a 4-5 year grant period to districts, ESDs and community colleges in Oregon.

Learn more about eligibility and completing the application on the EEW Grant page. You can also view the EEW Grant Webinar for information about the application process.


Mini Grants are intended to help Oregon school districts, ESDs and community colleges sustain their established employee well-being programs.

You do not have to be a past grantee of OEA Choice Trust to apply for this grant, though we encourage you to apply for an Education Employee Well-being Grant if you have not already been awarded. (If you are currently awarded an EEW grant, you will not be eligible for a Mini Grant until the EEW Grant is completed.)

Mini Grants are awarded twice per year; up to $5,000 can be awarded.
