OK, so you’re ready to make change happen at school! Despite wanting to do what’s best for students’ health, many schools lack the necessary resources to implement health and wellness practices that help students eat better and stay physically active. Action for Healthy Kids has provided $7.7 million in grants to schools since 2009 to help them accomplish their student wellness goals.

Grants up to $1,000 are available for K-12 schools and schools with greater than 50% of students eligible for free/reduced-priced meals may receive priority, but all schools are encouraged to apply.
