About Our Grants

Philosophy for Grants


The RREF Board of Directors will continually review the Grant Program, its policies, methods of operation and criteria for funding proposals.

Teacher Grants

The program is open to all classroom teachers, librarians, special education teachers, counselors, and principals employed by the Rio Rancho Public Schools. One grant per teacher will be awarded per year.

The program is open to all Rio Rancho School District campuses. Each school may submit multiple applications.

Each year, through outstanding community support of Seats ‘n Eats, the Rio Rancho Education Foundation raises thousands of dollars for Rio Rancho Public Schools.

At the beginning of the new school year, grant applications are distributed to schools.

Teachers and administrators work hard to design imaginative and high need projects for funding consideration.

RREF Grant Committee members review the many, many worthy proposals and award money based on several criteria.

Award recipients are required to track progress of awarded projects.
