The holidays are over and hopefully so is the over-eating, sitting in the car driving from party to party, and school break. It’s time to get back to eating right and exercising. Most important in this effort are children. Below we have selected four grants that are aimed at keeping kids healthy and also supporting physical education efforts in schools.
Did you know the average school budget for Physical Education is only $764 per year? And that 48% of all high schools have no PE? Plus, despite an increase in obesity in children, there is no federal law requiring physical education to be provided to students in the American education system. Often, physical education departments in schools have to look for outside funding like those found in grant opportunities. Below is a list of just a few of the grants designed to help schools get and keep kids active.
