PEP Questions Answered







The most frequent question we receive here at Peaceful Playgrounds regarding PEP Grants is:
1. Will the PEP grant pay for a new playground or a new facility?

The purpose of the PEP grant is not to provide new playgrounds or facilities. The PEP grant provides funding for the development and implementation of physical education programs. As a result, funds are provided for curriculum development, teacher training, student fitness assessments, data collection and evaluations. While equipment purchases are allowable, successful grant applicants propose programs that address various aspects of a comprehensive physical education program.
