As a community-focused cooperative, Northwestern REC is dedicated to offering programs that help improve the quality of life. The teacher grant program is one way the co-op reaches out to children – the members of tomorrow.
The Clearly Brighter Teacher Grant Program was designed to reach these kids by helping teachers better afford innovative and effective educational curriculum that is not covered by traditional school financing. Individual teachers can apply for grants up to $250, while teams of teachers (two or more) can apply for grants up to $500.
Each year, Northwestern REC will award a total of $4,000 through this grant program. Applications for the next grant period (fall 2020) will be accepted online beginning May 1, 2020, through Sept. 15, 2020. Visit NorthwesternREC.coop for more information.

Northwestern REC is a nonprofit, member-owned electric cooperative serving over 20,000 members throughout five counties in northwest Pennsylvania.
