Funding Process

Venture Grant applications are submitted by teachers twice a year and awarded in the fall and spring. Teachers will be notified via email when the application process has begun.

Strong & Healthy Grant applications are submitted several times a year by “champions” designated to represent the areas of need in the community, including nutrition, literacy, mental health, toiletries and household supplies, academic fees and uniforms and supplies for career and technology students. Additional areas may be added as necessary.

All applications are reviewed by a committee of PMEF board members.

More information on the application process is available by contacting the PMEF executive director at or by calling (717) 872-9500, ext. 2332.
