Classroom Grant Program
It’s the end of the school year which means it’s the end of the 2018-19 grant cycle for Pets in the Classroom! Here are a few reminders on what that means for grant recipients:
June 30th, 2019 is the final deadline for any rebate or sustaining grant paperwork and receipts to be submitted. We cannot process any paperwork postmarked after June 30th. After 6/30/19, we will close our program for the summer and reopen for applications on August 1st, 2019.
June 1st was the last day to apply for a grant for the 2018-19 school year. We will reopen for applications for the 2019-20 school year on AUGUST 1, 2019.
All grant coupons issued for the 2018-19 school year will expire on July 31st. If you are not able to use your coupons by that date, please mail them back to us so that we can cancel this year’s grant and allow you to reapply for next school year.
We will begin accepting applications for the 2019-20 school year on August 1st, 2019. If you have already received an initial grant, you will be eligible to apply for a sustaining grant for *next* school year. (You can apply for a sustaining grant once per school year, which runs from August to June.) To apply, you will need to log into your account and select the sustaining grant option.
We hope you have a wonderful summer!
Pets in the Classroom is an educational grant program that provides financial support to teachers to purchase and maintain small animals in the classroom. The program was established by the Pet Care Trust to provide children with an opportunity to interact with pets—an experience that can help to shape their lives for years to come.
