TEACHER GRANT PROGRAM
Every year, the MHEF sets aside funds for teachers who are taking on innovative and challenging projects in their classrooms. The grant money is obtained from endowments to the MHEF, fundraisers sponsored by the MHEF, and through automatic payroll deductions given by over 100 teachers of the district.
Project Promise is a scholarship program to help fund the tuition gap for all students graduating from Mountain Home High School attending two years at ASUMH. In effort to increase local workforce, the MHEF removes all barriers for post-secondary education.
