National PTA has $10,000 available for 10 PTA regions, districts and councils!
The Smart from
the Start Community Outreach grant, sponsored by the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation, allows your
region, district or council to partner with a local neighborhood community to
educate families of children ages 3-5 on the importance of balancing the
calories we consume through what we eat and drink with the calories we burn
through physical activity- known as “energy balance.”
Other benefits for your PTA include:
Please note that at the time of applying, the PTA just needs to have a sense of what the energy balance needs of their community are, what community partners they may reach out to and what PreKs in their area they may be able to work with.
