Travel Support and Discounted Registration

NACTO has limited funds for travel support and discounted registrations, but encourages those attendees that would be unable to attend otherwise to apply for support. Awards of travel support will be based on need; the number of awards will be determined by the availability of funding. Priority will be given to people who have not previously received travel support. Applications must be sent by August 15, 2016.
