School Grants for Healthy Kids Applications Due
Despite wanting to do what’s best for students’ health and academic success, many schools lack the necessary resources to implement health and wellness practices that help students eat better, stay physically active and be better prepared to learn. But thanks to our sponsors, Action for Healthy Kids has provided $8.7 million in grants to schools since 2009 to help them accomplish their student wellness goals.
- Game On Grants: fund physical activity and nutrition initiatives ($500 or $1,000)
- School Breakfast Grants: fund alternative models, breakfast promotions or family engagement ($1,000-$3,000)
- Parents for Healthy Kids: fund parents or parent groups to implement physical activity and nutrition initiatives (up to $1,000)
