The United Health Foundation and Whole Kids Foundation recognize the importance of health education. They are launching a nationwide grant program to promote children’s health and nutrition.
These Healthy Kids Innovation Grants are designed to support schools in a majorly underfunded area. The program available to educators, individuals, and non profit organizations will fund 10 to 12 projects. Grants, which range from $15,000 to $25,000, will be awarded in early 2016.
The grant program officially launched at West Vernon Elementary, one of the public schools submitting a letter of intent for a grant. The grants are part of United Health Foundation’s “Helping Build Healthier Communities” program, which provides resources to local nonprofits that have programs aimed at expanding access to care, improving health outcomes and building healthier communities.
Do you know an elementary school in need? Letters of intent for the program are due October 30th, with an application deadline to the program of December 15th.
