School Bus Travel Grant
The purpose of the Herbert Hoover Library Association Bus Travel Grant Program is to help schools in covering costs to travel to the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library in West Branch, Iowa. The Herbert Hoover Presidential Library Association is a nonprofit support group for the Hoover Presidential Library-Museum and Hoover National Historic Site in West Branch.
The program, funded entirely through contributions from private individuals, corporations, & foundations, is specifically intended to promote public education about and appreciation for Herbert Hoover.
All schools are eligible to apply for the Bus Travel Grant.
Bus Travel Grants will be awarded in the order they are received as long as there are funds available to cover the request.
The funds will be used strictly for bus transportation cost (gas and bus driver). The formula used to determine the grant amount is $3.00/mile (distance calculated from school to Hoover Complex) with a minimum of $20.00 and a maximum of $300.00 per bus.
The Bus Travel Grant will be used solely to visit the Herbert Hoover Complex. The Travel Bus Grant Application Form must be received by the deadlines.
- 1. September 28th -- Fall/Winter Trips (between August and February)
- 2. February 22nd -- Spring Trips (between March and June)
Any requests received after the deadline will be taken into consideration as long as there are available funds.
The school will receive the money for each grant once the Hoover Association receives The Request for Reimbursement Form.
The Request for Reimbursement Form must be received within one month after the trip.
