Healthy Schools Incentive Grants
Brightening the Future of Oklahoma's Children
TSET Healthy Schools Incentive Grants promote wellness by offering grants to schools and districts. Eligible grantees must implement health-promoting policies, encouraging students, faculty and staff to eat better, move more and be tobacco free.
Applications are accepted throughout the year. Announcements of awards may be made at the regularly scheduled TSET board meeting. Funding is limited and will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. All incentive grant applications should be submitted a minimum of 45 calendar days prior to any regularly scheduled meeting of the TSET Board of Directors.
TSET cannot guarantee that every proposal submitted according to the timeline will be considered at the next board meeting. The TSET Board of Directors has the discretion to determine whether proposals submitted less than 45 calendar days prior to a regularly scheduled board meeting will be heard at the upcoming meeting.
Certified Healthy Schools
For districts to be eligible for TSET incentive grants, individual schools within the district need to apply for and receive Certified Healthy School status from the Oklahoma State Department of Health. Schools can apply for Certified Healthy status at the Certified Healthy Oklahoma website: CertifiedHealthyOK.com. The application period for Certified Healthy Schools is open from August 1 – November 1.
School District Incentive Grant
School districts that adopt all incentive grant policies and criteria will be eligible to apply for funding. A bonus incentive grant will be offered to districts that adopt policies allowing only healthy food and beverages during the school day and at all school events, including after-school programs, celebrations, fundraising and concessions.
School Incentive Grant
After a school district has met incentive grant criteria, individual school sites awarded Certified Healthy School status will be eligible to apply for incentive grants. Schools will implement policy and work on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Coordinated School Health Framework. The incentive grants for schools will be progressive as the applicant school continues to work on Coordinated School Health and work toward CDC recognized best practices by utilizing the School Health Index and implementing action plans to improve student and faculty health and wellness.
Applicants must contact the TSET Healthy Schools Incentive Grants Program Manager, Sharon Howard, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (405) 521-6231 to discuss application prior to presentation of request.
