CORE Grant Program 2017-2019

Thanks to the generosity of the EC Brown Foundation, we are thrilled to once again offer grants to SBHCs across the state to facilitate healthy youth relationships programming in your communities.

Please take note of some changes that have been made to the CORE grant program this year:

  1. Grants will now operate on a biennium, for 2 years of programming, from June 2017-June 2019. This will give all grantees the ability to build more sustainable programming.
  2. CORE grants are no longer on a reimbursement schedule. Payments will be distributed up front, twice per year, at the start of each     school year and halfway through the year.
  3. Reporting requirements for the CORE grant are substantially reduced; all that is required are two narrative reports about the ongoing project.
  4. There will be training provided for all CORE grantees to ensure all who are implementing CORE grant programming have the knowledge, skills, and tools they need to facilitate sustainable healthy youth relationship programs.
