Professional Grants:

RC#13 retirees continue to support in-service teachers and professional support staff working in the classroom. With this in mind, a grant has been developed to support in-service professionals working to enhance the educational process for their students.  Grants will be awarded in any amount up to $500.00.  

The Retiree Council #13 Grant Applications are sent in January to all local presidents and Teacher Center Directors in the five counties.  The Grant Committee requests that the local presidents disperse the application to each member of their local.

The Grant Committee reviews each completed application received once all criteria are met. Recipients are awarded the grant in June. Our grant application can be found by Clicking Here

For additional grant information contact:

Susan Eagan.


Program Development Committee:

RC#13 is committed to supporting and enriching the lives of its members. The Program Development Committee meets periodically to discuss and recommend new programs, workshops and events that will engage and mobilize members in our region.

New Chapter Committee:

Our goal is to help create a local retiree chapter for all the in-service locals within the five counties. The New Chapter Committee is a person-to-person resource intended to assist in creating and organizing a local chapter affiliated with their in-service local, Retiree Council #13 and NYSUT. We serve as an on-call support and information resource for our locals.
