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.

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.
