Grant Guidelines

Excellence Grant Guidelines:

  • Applicants must be Cedar Falls Community School district (CFCSD) staff.
  • Projects must align with the mission, vision, and values of the District and Foundation, and comply with all district policies.
  • Requests for capital projects (i.e. permanent physical structures) and the funding of salaries will not be considered. These requests must go through CFCSD administration and/or the Board of Education.
  • Grants are designed to be used immediately, beginning in the 2022-2023 school year. Funds cannot carry over to the next school year and unused funds will be forfeited. Items purchased with grant funds become the property of CFCSD.
  • Number of grants awarded will be based on amount of funding available.
  • Payment Policy: All expenses must be processed through the CFCSD Business Office. The Foundation does not reimburse individuals.
