Important to Know

How much is the grant, and what can we use it for?

The grant amount is $3,000 for first year applicants and $1,500 for second and third year applicants.

The grant must be used in direct support of your Action Plan, to make lasting changes and promote physical activity before, during and after the school day. Grant funds may cover the cost of program(s) and related equipment; professional development and training materials; and posters, newsletters and other marketing materials. Grants may be used for programs you are already implementing, as long as they directly support your Action Plan.

Grants will not support: salaries for school/district employees; one time activities/events unless they are clearly linked to creating sustainable active school environments; activities/items covered under the school’s general fund; traditional classroom curricula; or activities that benefit only some students (e.g. competitive sports teams).


What information will I be required to report?

At the end of the grant funding period, we will ask you to update your school assessment online, so we can see what changes have been made in your school.

  2. What type of programs or activities did you implement?
