West Coast Haunters Convention (WCHC)
Grants ranging from $200 to $2,000 to USA special education teachers in multiple states to improve outcomes for students with autism or hearing loss. Eligible states include Alaska, Oregon, Washington, Hawaii, California, Utah, Montana, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, Colorado, and Wyoming.
West Coast Haunters Convention assists students with hearing loss and/or autism to help them achieve success in their endeavors in and beyond the classroom. The organization achieves this through mini-grants for those who work within the deaf and autistic communities and donations of hearing aids.
The organization provides support and assistance primarily to professionals working within these communities (i.e. deaf and autism) in state schools, resource rooms, public, private, technical and parochial schools who participate in programs servicing deaf and/or autistic students. Mini-grants are available to students 3-18 years old.
The grants are given to individual special education instructors. The funds can be used to help a specific student or group of students. The funds are used to help implement innovative educational projects that are not currently funded through other ways. West Coast Haunters Convention also accepts donations of hearing aid devices and provides them to children as part of the mini-grants.
All grant awardees are required to fill out a feedback form within one year of receiving the grant. Review of the feedback forms helps determine if the awardee will be considered for future grants.
Each year, the WCHC provides teachers with funds to implement innovative educational projects through the Mini-Grant program. All information must be submitted according to the order outlined in this mini-grant application. Please do not send catalogs or videotapes with your application. Submission of the application does not guarantee to fund.
Projects that show innovation and enrich the skills of students will be given the greatest consideration. Programs that can be replicated in other locations also will be given favorable consideration
