Grant Proposal: Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America (BDPA Cincinnati)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) and BDPA Cincinnati chapter combined on a $10,000 grant proposal to the folks at Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America (TEMA). BDPA and TEMA have worked together often in the past. In fact, TEMA was a major force in the creation of our BDPA Lexington chapter and TEMA employees have served on the board of directors for BDPA Cincinnati chapter in the past.

TEMA provides funding within the Tri-State area of Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and Southeastern Indiana. Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky serves all other counties in Kentucky; Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana serves other counties in Indiana.

TEMA primarily supports education, environment and safety, but also funds civic groups, health and human services, arts and culture. TEMA prefers to support programs, rather than events. Communities served must be in Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky or Southeast Indiana. Submission deadlines for applications are: January 1, April 1, July 1, October 1. TEMA does not donate vehicles or make grants to individuals.

We should have an answer within 45 days. Wish us luck!
