Each fall, MFEE awards up to $60,000 in grants directly to our schools. These grants are awarded in three categories: Educational Excellence, Social and Emotional Learning, and Professional Development. The three categories all share the same goals: to foster classroom innovation, empower our educators, and boost the learning of Montclair students.
