Grants are available in all curriculum areas including art, science, history, music, and mathematics, and Halifax EMC expects to award approximately six grants to local teachers during the 2023–24 school year. Over the past 29 years, Halifax EMC has issued more than $192,000 for 161 projects that have benefited well over 22,000 students.
