TSET Healthy Incentive Grants - Schools

Brightening the Future of Oklahoma's Children

Healthy behaviors established during childhood carry through to adulthood.  To promote and support those healthy behaviors, the TSET Healthy Incentive program offers grants to districts and schools that adopt and implement best and promising practices in tobacco-free environments, nutrition, physical activity and employee wellness.  

All public school districts that meet grant criteria are eligible to apply for a TSET Healthy District Incentive grant. School districts must successfully adopt health promoting policies before individual schools sites are eligible to apply. Policy requirements for the TSET Healthy Incentive grants help to create a learning environment that establishes and supports healthy behaviors for students, teachers and staff. 

The grant year begins July 1, 2020 and ends June 30, 2021. Funds for the TSET Healthy Incentive Program for Schools are limited and applications will be accepted during two set application periods during the year. The TSET Board of Directors will be presented with a list of potential awardees at the November 2020 and March 2021 meetings. 

Funding is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. The application period for school districts will open on September 15, 2020.

Upon review of the program guidelines, prerequisite requirements and criteria, a school or district staff member of the interested organization must contact Sharon Howard, TSET Healthy Incentive Grant Program Manager, at [email protected].

HEALTHY SCHOOLS INCENTIVE GRANT AWARDS

Funding is based on the district’s student enrollment, the strength of the policy elements and criteria met. A district may receive a maximum cumulative award if policy and practice meet the gold level.

Individual School Sites
Three levels of funding are available, and build on the implementation of the policy and practices at the school site. Individual school sites and school districts will use the same wellness policy framework. School sites can choose to create an environment that exceeds the requirements of the district policy. Funding is based on the schools implementation of the policy and practices and student enrollment. Award Amounts are cumulative.
