State Funding/Grants

You might qualify for state funding to subsidize your retreat expenses. Most states have funds available for families attending educational meetings. In many of these instances, CCA’s Craniofacial Symposium which kicks off the retreat weekend meets these qualifications. Check the agencies in your state to see if you qualify.
