Today, the U.S. Department of Education awarded 60 grants totaling nearly $32 million to Local Education Agencies (LEAs) and community-based organizations (CBOs) under the Carol M. White Physical Education Program (PEP). Funding is intended to assist these entities with initiating, expanding, or enhancing physical education and nutrition education programs, including after-school programs, for students in grades K-12. The PEP program is aligned with and supports First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move! Active Schools initiative to get kids moving before, during and after school.
