Funding for IDAP

The Individual Development Awards Program is funded through labor-management funds negotiated Article 21, Statewide Joint Labor-Management Committees of the Agreement between the State and UUP. Proportional allocations are assigned to each Campus Professional Development Committee based on the number of UUP represented employees on a campus. The Campus Professional Development Committee is required to dedicate a minimum of 15% of the funds allocated to their campus to part-time employees. If applications from part-time employees amount to less than 15% of the total funds, then the remainder from the set amount can be reallocated to awards for full-time employees. On campuses where more than 35% of the employees are part time, the Campus Professional Development Committee should consider increasing the portion of funds set aside for part-time awards.

Awards (effective 9/2022)

  • The maximum amount that can be awarded for each employee under this program is $2,000. 
  • Employees may be funded for up to two projects or activities, not to exceed a total of $2,000 for the funding period
    • The date for submitting a completed application with attachments is determined by the Campus Professional Development Committee.  Announcements will be made that applications are being accepted through UUP listserv.
    • The decision to fund an application is at the discretion of the Campus Professional Development Committee. 
    • Program Evaluation There is no requirement to submit a Program Evaluation to the NYS/UUP JLMC office. Each Campus Professional Development Committee determines the type of evaluation to be submitted to the Campus Professional Development Committee upon completion of the projects or activities.
