MANSFIELD, OH - Local educators are invited to submit grant applications to the Richland County Foundation.

Teacher Assistance Program (TAP) grants of up to $1,500 each are selected by a community committee for classroom projects not covered by school funding. The grants are given to K-12 teachers in public or private Richland County schools to encourage them to carry out effective programs for their students.

TAP grants started in 1998 and since then the Foundation has granted over $537,000 to local teachers.

Teachers also can apply for a Harry and Lois McCullough Fund grant. The grants are available for the purpose of promoting writing, literature appreciation, music and Ohio history through creative, innovative and effective methods and programs.

Both applications are available on richlandcountyfoundation.org. The deadline to apply for both grants is Friday, July 7.

For additional information email or call Community Investment Officer Alan Mitchell at amitchell @rcfoundation.org 419-525-3020.
