Haiti Partnership Grants

Grants fund activities that enable schools to establish, enhance or expand a partnership program by providing funds for schools needing assistance for delegations to travel to Haiti, with priority for those exploring or establishing new partnerships.

Grants are awarded on a rolling basis until all grant funds are expended for the year. The grant amount may not exceed $2,500. A school must be a NAES member for both the current year in which it applies and the year in which the grant is received, with all NAES dues paid in full.

NAES gratefully acknowledges the Shield-Ayres Foundation whose generous support of the Haiti Partnership Program has made this program possible.
