Three grants are available from Action for Healthy Kids ranging from $1,000 – $5,000. Approximately 400 schools nationwide will receive grants.
- School Breakfast Program Creation or Expansion Grants
- Universal School breakfast Grant – $5,000
- Physical Activity Grants – select states may apply including AL, DC/MD, GA, IL, IN, KY, OH, PA, & WV
I want to focus on the Physical Activity Grant since teachers may apply. Schools with 50% of students eligible for free/reduced meals may receive priority. The goal of the grant is to increase physical activity 30 minutes per day. Funds may be used for equipment for playground, recess and before/after school programs. Grants are for the 2013-14 school year.
