New Jersey Educator Grants: Call for Proposals


The Literacy and Learning Impact Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help provide a brighter future for our children. Our teachers strive every day to achieve this, and it’s no surprise that teachers often dip into their own pockets to stock their classroom with supplies. The Help Our Teachers Fund program aims to remove the burden of providing the resources teachers need to help fuel a semester of active learning for their entire class.

Applications are now open and you are invited to apply for the Help Our Teachers Fund Grants 2022.

The ADP Foundation, for the second year, generously donated $5,000 to the Help Our Teachers fund, specifically for teachers in New Jersey – 10 grants of up to $500 each. Recipients of a Help Our Teachers Fund grant can receive up to $500 to use to enhance their students’ learning experience.

In the past, grant recipients have used the funds for many items such as student headphones, digital learning programs, project-based learning supplies, and fitness items. A teacher working in an urban school in New Jersey was looking for a variety of reading materials for students who often didn’t have access to books to read at home.

Applicants for the Help Our Teachers fund must be employed by an accredited K-12 public or private school located in New Jersey.

  • Full-time teachers, other certified staff, and paraprofessionals with effective and innovative projects that enhance student learning are eligible to apply.
  • Candidates must be verified by the school superintendent, principal, or candidate’s immediate supervisor. If you are selected as a recipient, the school official will be contacted to verify your employment status and proposed project.
  • Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, age, sexual orientation, sex or gender identity, disability or national origin.

Applications must be submitted no later than October 3, 2022 for the 2022-23 school year.
