    LEF is a public education foundation, therefore all grant funding is for Lafayette Parish Public Schools. LEF Classroom and School Impact Grant Applications are offered on an annual basis and consist of the following types of grants:

    Classroom and School Impact Grants Program:

    With help from several great sponsors, LEF is excited to provide funding for sixteen Grant programs this school year. These grants touch on a number of subjects, whether it's providing students with books to match their personal interests or teaching 800 students how to develop a school newspaper, each of these programs are bound to have a positive outcome. LEF looks forward to working with these teachers and reporting success stories throughout the year.
