The goal of NAP Educational Foundation (NAPEF) grants is to support the use of parliamentary procedure in promoting effective, fair, and democratic decision-making.
NAPEF funds projects that will enhance and increase parliamentary education for both non-parliamentary and parliamentary organizations/individuals by making opportunities available for production of professional parliamentary materials, services, and events.
Examples of the types of initiatives that may be funded by NAPEF grants include:
NAPEF grants are available to NAP committees and districts (after approval by the NAP board), as well as NAP associations and units. Other groups involved in parliamentary procedure education may also apply.
