Deadline to apply: September 20, 2019
Grant Submission Criteria:1. Grants are available to kindergarten through 12th grade teachers at accredited public, private and charter schools in Clark County.
2. The purpose of these mini-grants is to support teachers in presenting the history of the City of Las Vegas in innovative and engaging ways, both in and out of the classroom. Mini-grants can be used to support activities such as field trips, supplies, equipment, honorarium for speakers, or activities as long as all expenses support theoverall mission of the grant.
3. Projects must focus on the history of the City of Las Vegas itself, rather than the Strip, Hoover Dam, or other places in Nevada. Field trips may occur outside city limits, but the focus should remain on how these outside events or locations affected the City of Las Vegas. Please note: The Las Vegas Strip is located in unincorporated Clark County, not the City of Las Vegas. For a map of the City of Las Vegas, please visit: https://files.lasvegasnevada.gov/map/Council-Ward-Pictures-Map-8.5x11.pdf.

7. One grant submission per teacher is allowed. A teacher is not allowed to submit multiple grant proposals for different projects.
8. Teachers from the same school may not submit duplicate grant proposals for the same project.

11. In the event you have submitted the same project for a grant with another organization and you are awarded the other organization’s grant first, please decline JLLV funds so we may fund a different project in the community.
