Grants to Granby, Connecticut nonprofits, schools, and agencies for creative, innovative educational projects that enrich the learning experience, increase skills and knowledge, and expand students' perspectives.

Grants may be used for educational initiatives that fall outside existing budgets, such as:
- Visiting authors and guest speakers
- Seed money to help launch innovative new programs
- Educational materials and equipment which support innovative programming.

The GEF funds programs that:
- Illustrate innovation and creativity,
- Enrich educational offerings;
- Offer unique learning opportunities;

In addition, grant proposals should:
- Have a clearly defined action plan;
- Provide appropriate evaluation criteria; and
- Demonstrate breadth of impact.

Grants are not intended to replace or relieve the existing responsibility for public funding of school programs, nor are they intended to replace regular budget growth and maintenance.
