Is your PAC interesting in hiring a speaker for a PAC event, or getting a grant from DPAC? DPAC may be able to assist your PAC.
Decisions on funding are made at general DPAC meetings, usually held on the first Monday of each month. Please submit the request at least one week in advance of the meeting. DPAC has a limited amount of money for grants, and may not be able to fund all requests. Cheques will not be issued until the event occurs, and a final invoice is available.
Use of funds:
- Speaker Grants: up to $300 towards hiring speakers for PAC events
- Family of Schools Grants: up to $200 contribution toward a joint event, such as within a family of schools (the group of schools around each secondary school), serving to improve communication/interaction between schools
- Anti-bullying Grant: up to $200 for PACs to promote anti-bullying in their school
- BCCPAC Conference Attendance: an application may be made if there is any excess DPAC funding to pay for PAC parent attendance at BCCPAC conferences.
