Created as a pilot program in 2001, the Holmes County Education Foundation began providing Professional Development Grants to public and non-profit organizations in the community.  The grant program was designed to help applicants offset the costs of professional seminars, workshops, or programs that are not funded by their respective organizations. (Preference is given to in-state seminars, workshops, or programs.)

The Professional Development Grant program goals are to identify and recognize Holmes County residents who exemplify professionalism in service, to provide opportunities for professional growth activities, and to encourage staff from all public and non-profit organizations to join together to enhance the quality of service in the community. Grant monies are drawn from a pool of funds allocated by the Holmes County Education Foundation Board of Trustees, and upon meeting the requirements laid out in the grant application, applicants are approved on a first-come-first-served basis.  Applications are accepted year round.
