The FFA Reimbursement Program funds are made available to Pennsylvania's county FFA organizations by reimbursing a portion of their annual expenses for activities that promote leadership development.

Guidelines & Uses

Reimbursements may be used to pay a portion of the costs associated with the FFA organizations' overall activities.

Allocations are calculated based upon enrollment data and are separated into funding reimbursement categories as explained below:

    • Tier I: County FFA Organizations with 100 members or less will receive base funding of $1,000 with an additional $4.00 per member.
    • Tier II:  County FFA Organizations with 101 to 210 members inclusive will receive a $2,000 base funding with an additional $2.00 per member.
