Request a Grant Writer

Grants and in-kind support to USA schools to support mental health initiatives for children. Applicants must contact the funding source prior to submitting a proposal. Eligible applicants are schools for children in Pre-K through 12th grade and serve military families. Schools that serve students with 75% or more of students eligible for free/reduced-priced meals and/or located in California, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Texas, Colorado, and North Carolina may receive priority. Multiple schools in one district applying for the same or similar projects are encouraged.

The goal of Game On: Social Emotional Health Grants is to support schools in implementing school-based programs and practices that explore the mind-body connection between physical and emotional health and help to develop resiliency in students. Schools will implement strategies and best practices that support social and emotional well-being, while bringing families and schools together to build the capacity of both groups and implement changes that improve the school community culture with health-promoting policies and practices. 

Award decisions will be based on need, building enrollment, number of students from military families being served, potential impact, project creativity and innovation, and a school’s ability to mobilize students, staff and families around student wellness initiatives.
