The Federal Employee Education & Assistance Fund (FEEA) - or "FEE-uh" as it's commonly pronounced - is the only non-profit organization devoted solely to helping civilian federal and postal employees.
FEEA helps federal employees every day through our three signature programs. We also partner with some three dozen membership organizations, unions and federal agencies to administer special programs that are available only to their members.
Annual Scholarship Competition:
FEEA sponsors the only annual, merit-based contest open only to civilian federal and postal employees, their spouses and college-age children. Awards range from $500-$7,500 for one year, and FEEA also administers a number of special scholarships. More information>
Emergency Assistance Program:
Emergency loans are available to help employees who fall behind on basic living expenses (mortgage/rent or utilities) due to unforeseen emergencies such as leave without pay, government pay error, death or illness in the family. The current loan limit is $1000. More information>
Child Care Subsidy Program:
FEEA administers a childcare subsidy program for more than two dozen federal agencies. In accordance with Public Law 107-67, federal agencies may use appropriated funds to assist their lower income employees with child care costs - reducing the amount parents pay for childcare through subsidies paid directly to the child care provider.
