2022 EPIC Grant Winners

The National Parents Union (NPU) is dedicated to ensuring that Everyday Parents Impact Change (EPIC) – and we are putting our money where our mouth is! Parent activists in communities nationwide applied to NPU’s EPIC grant program to hold their local school boards and districts accountable for transparently engaging families in decision-making. We are inspired by your energy and ideas and desire to see your child’s education reimagined!

Now, without further delay, we are delighted to announce our $5,000 EPIC Grant Winners from cities across the country!

We are inspired by their energy and ideas and desire to see their child’s education reimagined!
