Yes! You Can Get Federal Stimulus Money for Music Education in Pennsylvania

In April 2021, PMEA presented this webinar detailing how music educators can receive federal funding for music education in Pennsylvania.

In the past 12 months, there has been an unprecedented amount of money the federal government has provided to schools (like once in a lifetime amount of money!) Much of this money comes with very few limitations and can easily be accessed for music education programs. You simply must ASK FOR THE MONEY!

We’ll show you how easy it is to access this money and how you can put it to use in your music programs. The money is there – you simply have to take advantage of it! PMEA’s Director of Public and Government Affairs Mark Despotakis is joined by PMEA’s 2020 Outstanding Superintendent, Dr. Thomas Ralston from the Avonworth School District and Dr. Dorie Martin-Pitone from the Marple-Newtown School District who will give us the insiders views on how to access and use these funds.
