State and local parent groups are encouraged to affiliate with NAPVI. Affiliation enables a local or state organization easy access to information and support for national positions on educational reform, best educational practices and a forum for discussing issues of specific interest with other parents and experts in the field. Small grants may be given to affiliate groups for assistance in mailings, presenting workshops, and attending national parent meetings. NAPVI affiliates are also eligible for grants from the Hilton/Perkins program.
