In an effort to support SPA Virtual Convention and Workshop attendees who have family care responsibilities that may deter them from attending, SPA is offering a Family Caregiver Grant to a limited number of families on a first come first serves basis (up to $250 per family). These funds may be used to offset the cost of additional care due to attending the convention and/or workshops.
Any SPA member with one or more dependents requiring childcare, elder care, or care due to disability, is eligible for this support. These funds are intended for members with financial need who might not be able to attend the convention without this support. The funds are not intended to cover routine care costs that a member is already paying on a day-to-day basis. Only one caregiver grant per family may apply.
Applications are open Now – March 1, 2021. If you have questions about the grants or the application, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline to submit application is March 1, 2021!
