  • Cell phones/ computers/IPADS/  hardware & software can only be purchased this year if not purchased within the last three years. The item must be paid for in-full. NO INSTALLMENT PLAN PURCHASES ARE ELIGIBLE FOR PGP FUND REIMBURSEMENT.
  • Only the CASA Member can purchase the items. The last four digits of your credit card must be on the receipt. Also, when submitting your PGP Fund application, include a copy of your credit card, with only the last four digits showing.
  • College / graduate school tuition is reimbursable, providing you were actively enrolled in the course during the period for which you are requesting reimbursement. Professional seminars / conferences are also reimbursable, providing the topic is connected to the main body of the work that you perform, and the event / membership is for the current year 2018-19 only.  STUDENT LOAN PAYMENTS ARE NOT REIMBURSABLE FROM THE PGP FUND.
