Applications due in November 2019
Awards announced in December 2019

The Arlington County Council of PTAs (CCPTA) has partnered with Arlington’s PTAs to establish the County PTA Collaboration Initiative (CPCI). The CPCI provides targeted financial grants to those Arlington public schools in need of funding to accomplish specific, limited goals that have not been funded by county or private sources.

The CCPTA fully supports the goal of Arlington Public Schools “to instill a love of learning in its students and prepare them to be responsible and productive global citizens,” as outlined in its current strategic plan. The CPCI specifically supports the goal to provide greater equality and equity in academic experiences and opportunities across schools by enabling those PTAs with sufficient funds to help those schools lacking financial resources. The CCPTA encourages collaboration among schools, particularly when those efforts reach and support more disadvantaged students than any one school could support individually.

If you are interested in making a donation to the CPCI fund, please email the CCPTA Treasurer. Donations are accepted anytime. If you are interested in applying for a CPCI grant, please refer to the Guidelines linked below and complete the Grant Application Form. Applications can be emailed to the CPCI Working Group and are evaluated and awarded twice annually or as the budget allows. The primary grant period deadline is the November CCPTA meeting date.
