Grant Patrol takes place on the first Friday of December and the last Friday of April. Signs are placed at each school site the night before Grant Patrol. Teachers and Administrators are aware Grant Patrol will be visiting the site but do not know which grants will be awarded. Grant recipients do not know if they are receiving grants until the Grant Patrol shows up in their classroom, awarding the grant and bringing balloons to the teacher and doughnuts for the class.
During the 2022-23 academic year, the CPSF awarded more than $75,000 in grants to educators!
