Quality Of Work Life Grants
Build a Better Workplace for Employees
Working together, state managers and CSEA leaders can apply for grant funding to boost employee morale, productivity, service delivery, and more.
Through collaboration and leadership, successful grant initiatives can help build trust and strengthen a willingness to work together daily. That’s why state managers and CSEA leaders must commit to working together through all phases of the grant project.
You can apply for up to $3,000 per grant category per fiscal year.
