Colorado Creating Healthy Schools: Local Planning and Assessment
Colorado Creating Healthy Schools: Local Planning and Assessment Grants provide funds for local planning, capacity-building, and community collaboration efforts in support of developing a comprehensive school health and wellness plan related to:
- Comprehensive physical activity
- Supportive nutrition environments for healthy food and beverages
- Cultures and climates in schools that are supportive of student and staff health and wellness
- Health education
- Student health services
- Student behavioral health needs
Funding will support rural, frontier, and/or high-need districts/charters where 50% or more of students are free or reduced-price lunch eligible. Funding can go to a school district, a group of school districts, a group of charter schools, Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES), or local community partners acting on behalf of school districts.
Districts must participate in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). Charter and innovation schools not participating in the NSLP may qualify if they have an existing, sustainable approach to providing meals that meet Healthy Hunger Free Kids nutrition standards, including providing free and reduced price meals to eligible students.
Funding amounts are based upon the number of students in the school district and the percentage of students receiving free and reduced price lunches, as shown in the Anticipated Funding Amounts Table.
