The objective of the REA3D grant program is to award up to $1,000 in funding to projects that further the REA3D mission: “To support lifelong learning within Proctor School District communities.”
To view images of previously funded projects, please go to our Grants in Action page.
Projects should address academic, art, and/or athletic learning areas that impact communities and/or students within the Proctor School District (ISD 704) (see map below).
