School Districts, private, and parochial schools in the nine parishes served by The Rapides Foundation are invited to apply for the Healthy Behaviors Initiative School District Partnership Grant. Applicants should become familiar with the grant requirements and submission deadlines as outlined in the Request for Proposals located in the Key Materials section.
Applicants are encouraged to schedule a call or meeting with the Healthy Behaviors Initiative Program Officer to discuss their grant before submission. Please schedule the meeting at least two weeks before the grant is due. Contact Trayce Snow, Senior Program Officer, at email@example.com or 318-443-3394 to request a meeting.
Please note: This grant opportunity is available only to school districts, private, and parochial schools located in the nine-parish area served by The Rapides Foundation (Allen, Avoyelles, Catahoula, Grant, LaSalle, Natchitoches, Rapides, Vernon and Winn). These organizations are invited to apply for the 2020-21 Healthy Behaviors Initiative School District Partnership Grant, which seeks to prevent and reduce tobacco use, substance and alcohol abuse, and overweight/obesity by focusing on changing policy, social norms and environments in Central Louisiana. Activities in this grant opportunity are based on best and promising practices to create comprehensive school- and community-based awareness and prevention programs in order to positively impact Central Louisiana students, educators and staff. The goal is to provide students, staff and teachers with the knowledge and skills necessary to make better and informed behavior decisions leading to healthier lives.
Grant funds will be disbursed at the district level and are based on the number of participating schools and the category of activities each school selects from the School Participation Table. All schools are encouraged to participate. Complete details about grant requirements and the grant submission process can be found in the Healthy Behaviors School District Partnership Grant Commitment Form located in the Key Materials section in the right column. Please review the document thoroughly prior to submission. Required grant attachments are also located in the Key Materials section.
District Coordinators must offer the grant opportunity to all schools in the school district, compile the information, and then complete the online grant forms and required attachments using the Foundation’s online application process. (see Proposal link in right column.)
