About Innovative Program Awards:
The 2016 Innovative Program Award grant cycle is now open! Applicants are invited to submit proposals for innovative CPE projects that do not exceed $5,000. This year, $15,000 is available in grant funds, as funding is currently limited to a percentage of the funds raised by the ACPE Sowing Seeds for Our Holy Work Annual Campaign. The 2016 Innovative Program Award application and proposal outline may be accessed by clicking here.

Innovative program awards are granted to projects that align with the following strategic initiatives of ACPE:
1) increasing the number/diversity of certified ACPE supervisors, 
2) increasing the number/diversity of accredited ACPE centers, 
3) offering new technological applications to support the increase in accredited centers and certified CPE educators and, 
4) enhancing professional development opportunities for ACPE membership.
