Improving School Supports Pilot Program

Equipping schools with quality resources, specifically designed as a response to the challenges and uncertainty that the pandemic has created in the world of education, is more critical now than ever.  If anything, this pandemic has made it clear that the connection between education and health is inseparable. 

In May 2022, the GFPE, in partnership with Kaiser Permanente and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation invited schools served by the Heart of Georgia RESA to apply for the Improving School Supports Mini Grant up to $1,200 to implement health-related strategies for students and/or staff, following the completion of a needs assessment. In addition, the organizations invited the Heart of Georgia RESA to apply for the Facilitator Incentive Fund grant up to $5,000 to support their participation with Alliance for a Healthier Generation programming. 

In June 2022, the GFPE and Kaiser Permanente announced the winners of the pilot program.
