Two IEA Members Awarded the Music & Arts Grant by California Casualty

Annually California Casualty, the IEA/NEA Member Benefits provider of auto and home insurance, grants to NEA members nationwide awards to supplement the music and arts programs in their schools.  This year two awards have gone to two IEA members. These two awards are amongst 60 grants being awarded in 23 states this year.  Each award is $250 and they have been sent to the awardees the end of September. In their grant application, the recipients demonstrated a strong financial need that aligned with the simple purpose of the program – to keep music and arts in school programs and classroom curriculum.
