Funding Opportunity: Creating Healthy Schools

Funding Overview

The Colorado Health Foundation Board approved a ten-year commitment to healthy schools efforts. This recommendation is designed to connect system and local level efforts to create a sustainable network that fosters health and wellness and provides a thriving environment for kids throughout Colorado. Based on historic funding levels, input from stakeholders across the state and our work in the healthy schools space, the Foundation will support the following three funding opportunities:

Local planning and assessment – Provide up to two year grants to districts, groups of districts, groups of charter schools or local community partners to implement local planning, capacity-building and community collaboration processes.

Local implementation Fund existing comprehensive school health and wellness plans and the implementation of select activities.

Statewide systems building – Support systems-level organizations to implement systems of support and healthy schools infrastructure.
