Parents for Healthy Kids Grants from Action for Healthy Kids
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.

We are pleased to offer Parents for Healthy Kids Grants for the 2018-2019 school year. These grants are designed for parents or parent groups (e.g. PTAs, PTOs, other) to lead school-based physical activity and nutrition initiatives and to engage more parents in student and family health.

Grants up to $1,000 are available for K-12 schools in the following states: AL, AR, CA, CT, DC, DE, FL, GA, IA, IL, IN, KS, KY, MA, MD, MI, MN, MO, MS, NC, NE, NH, NJ, NY, OH, OK, PA, RI, SC, SD, TN, TX, VA, VT, WI, WV. Schools with greater than 50% of students eligible for free/reduced-priced meals may receive priority, but all schools are encouraged to apply.
