CPO Special Projects

Special Project Fund Overview

If your active CPO has ideas for community projects, outreach activities or educational events, CPO Special Project Funds are available.

Proposals up to $500 will be considered, which would allow up to 5 total CPO projects to be funded in a fiscal year.

The links below provide an overview of the fund (including criteria and exclusions) and brief forms for submitting proposals, reimbursement information, and a completion report. (The pdf forms are fillable files.)

Reimbursement forms must be submitted before a proposal can be given final approval. Funds can be issued as a reimbursement of project expenses. Ask a CPO Coordinator about how to work with a vendor if that is part of your project, and how to plan the project billing accordingly.
