According to the 2020 KIDS COUNT Data Book, a study on the well-being of America's children, Georgia ranks 38th in the nation in child well-being and 37th in education nationally. Georgia ranks in the bottom 20% in five categories: children in poverty; high- school students not graduating on time; teens not attending school and not working; low birth weight babies; children in families where the household head lacks a high school diploma. In addition, over 200,000 of Georgia’s children are uninsured and, as a result, do not have a medical home and have very limited access to routine health care.
Grant Purpose: The purpose of this request for proposals is to stimulate planning and facilitate collaboration and community discussion to expand the number of school-based health centers in Georgia.
Note: PARTNERS for Equity in Child and Adolescent Health (PARTNERS) will provide technical assistance throughout the planning process as needed and requested.
Award Amount: Up to $10,000. Project Period: 12 months
