NATA Capitol Hill Day Grant
The following policy describes SEATA's NATA Capitol Hill Day Grant Program. The main purpose of this program is to align with SEATA’s Strategic Plan - Goal I: Engage in favorable state regulation. Objective 1.2 calls for SEATA to encourage and support both state and national Capitol Hill Day events to maximize legislative influences. This grant is established to assist members of State Associations in promoting the profession of athletic training and providing a direct member impact at the state and national levels.
SEATA members may be approved by the SEATA Executive Board to participate in legislative meetings scheduled in conjunction with the annual NATA Capitol Hill Day. Member(s) may submit a Funding Request Form to the SEATA President and Treasurer in advance for up to $500.00 to help defray travel, lodging, or meal costs for the meeting. SEATA members are encouraged to share expenses to the extent possible to allow a greater number of legislative contacts. Only those expenses not covered by the NATA and other institutions such as employers, etc. are eligible for reimbursement under this policy. The request must be submitted by February 15th and must be approved in advance of the trip by the SEATA Executive Board for reimbursement to be provided.
Following NATA Capitol Hill Day, original receipts must be provided and attached to the SEATA Expense Reimbursement Form. A copy of your NATA Capitol Hill Day Report must be submitted along with the SEATA Expense Reimbursement Form in order to receive reimbursement.
