Colorado Creating Healthy Schools: Local Implementation Grants provide funding for the implementation of comprehensive school health and wellness plans.

Proposals must focus on differentiated, youth friendly and equitable implementation of at least one of the following:

  • 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

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.

Applicants must have an existing comprehensive school health and wellness plan.

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.
