The Learning Forward Foundation annually awards one $10,000 competitive grant to Learning Forward Affiliates. Learning Forward Nebraska was notified in May that it was selected as the 2016 LFF grant recipient. The grant application was submitted by past president Chad Dumas and will be used to support the roll-out of the Executive Leadership Program, the development of a professionally-designed website, and to provide targeted professional development for members of the board of directors around the Standards of Professional Learning (Learning Forward). A three-year action plan will guide the activities articulated in the grant application.
