Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $2,500 to USA K-12 schools for projects and initiatives that support recreational activities and nutrition-based programming. Funding is intended to help schools promote healthy choices, and to increase physical activity and nutrition initiatives while promoting students’ social emotional learning. Award decisions are based on building enrollment, project type, potential impact, and a school’s ability to mobilize parents and students around school wellness initiatives.

Game On aligns with the following components of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model: health education, physical education & physical activity, community involvement, family engagement, and nutrition environment and services. The WSCC model is an evidenced-based model that focuses its attention on the child, emphasizes a school-wide approach and acknowledges learning, health and the school as being a part and reflection of the local community.

Awarded schools will implement at least one physical activity initiative to advance at least one of the following:

  • Physical activity minutes (to at least 30 minutes per day or by 10% if minutes are already more than 30)
  • Percentage of students participating in physical activity initiatives
  • Percentage of time students engage in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity

Awarded schools will implement at least one nutrition initiative to advance at least one of the following:

  • Student participation in nutrition education
  • Providing access to healthy foods/beverages wherever food is served, sold or shared on campus

Schools will be expected to join the celebration during Every Kid Healthy Week by hosting a family-friendly health promoting event during April 2021.
