Grants and in-kind support to Florida, New York, and Illinois school districts in eligible locations to promote student physical health and mental health. Funding is intended to support professional development, family-school partnerships, and policy implementation. School districts located in and around the following communities are eligible to apply for a District Partnership Grant: Chicago, Illinois; Jacksonville, Florida; Palm Beach, Florida; Friendship, New York.

Action for Healthy Kids (AFHK) is pleased to release its district partnership grant opportunities for the 2022-2023 school year. School district staff apply for support for district-level policy and professional development, as well as funding and professional development for schools within the district to support curricula/programs, best practices and policy implementation, and family-school partnerships to address social-emotional health and risk behavior prevention (ConnectEd), food access and nutrition education (NourishEd), and physical activity and active play (EnergizEd), and provide a learning environment where students are healthy in body and mind.

Through District Partnership Grants, AFHK establishes long-term partnerships with school districts and their schools that lead to lasting family-school partnerships, positive impacts on children’s health in body and in mind, and sustainable, systemic enhancements across multiple program areas. AFHK partners with districts for an initial four-year period to address three program areas: ConnectEd, NourishEd and EnergizEd. Partner districts receive cash and in-kind support from AFHK throughout the partnership. For more information about the program areas, see https://www.actionforhealthykids.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/2022-2023-District-Partnership-Grant-Request-for-Applications.pdf#page=2

During the 2022-2023 School Year (Partnership Year 1), Partner Districts Receive:

  • $100,000 in AFHK in-kind support plus $5,000 cash award to support of student and staff health and well-being.
  • Analyses of district's health and wellness policies, and school-level implementation of policies and practices, with expert recommendations and support to enhance content, language, implementation and evaluation.
  • Support in creation/maintenance/expansion of a District School Health Advisory Council to improve the health and wellbeing of students, families, and staff.
  • Learning sessions, digital tools and resources, and technical assistance for district staff, school staff and families around key topics related to the Whole School, Whole Child, Whole Community (WSCC) model.
  • An AFHK-hired Family Connector to support the development of family-school partnerships across the district and to provide additional in-depth support for up to 5 schools through learning sessions and ongoing coaching.
  • Access to AFHK's ConnectEd Curriculum Package, a collection of lessons, activities and resources for PK-12 to enhance student social-emotional learning.

For the schedule of funding and support over the course of four years, see the RFA in Supporting Documents below. 

AFHK believes zip code should not determine a child's health or educational outcomes. Therefore, school districts in which there is demonstrated need and a lack of resources will receive priority for funding. AFHK utilizes an equity index to guide grant decision making, which includes metrics related to poverty, race, population density, student disabilities and per pupil expenditures, to acknowledge characteristics that may result in health and educational disparities.
