Helpful Resources for Grant Applicants

Build a Better Workplace for Your Employees

Working together, state managers and CSEA leaders can apply for grant funding to boost employee morale, productivity, service delivery, and more.

That’s why we strongly encourage grant applicants to start by watching our recorded webinar about the Quality of Work Life Grants Program.

This webinar will help you to understand every step of the application and reimbursement process so that you can get the funding you need.

By the end of the webinar, you will be able to:

  • Explain the purpose of Quality of Work Life grants
  • Understand how to successfully complete a strong application
  • Understand the reimbursement process

Following the webinar, we encourage you to review the sample completed applications and other documentation available below to help you submit a strong application. 

Your regional field associate will also be instrumental in helping to guide you through the application process, so please reach out to them prior to submitting your application.
