Physical Education Grant Funding




Carol M. White Physical Education Program (closes 3/6). This program allows school districts and community-based organizations to initiate, expand, or enhance physical education programs, including after-school programs, for students in grades K-12. Recipients must implement programs that help students "make progress" toward meeting state standards.

It is estimated that approximately 95 awards will be selected for the 2009 competition. FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE GO TO THE CAROL WHILE PHYSICAL EDUCATION PROGRAM SITE. (Note: There is a sharing requirement. The federal share of a project's cost may not exceed 90% for the first year and 75% for subsequent years.)

Please check out Peaceful Playgrounds, Fundamental Movement Physical Education curriculum and the We Count Walking Program for inclusion in your grant proposal.
