Funding Opportunities

CORE grant application process is open now

Through the generous support of the EC Brown Foundation, the CORE grant program seeks to assist school-based health centers (SBHCs) as they work with school-aged youth to develop healthy relationship skills and knowledge, with a specific focus on social and sexual health.  

Project budgets are up to $10,000 and the objectives must be achievable within a one-year timeframe. Grant funding will vary based on the scope of the activities in approved grants as well as the number of SBHCs or partners involved.  Total CORE awards available will be $45,000, contingent on funding.
Eligible applicants meet one of the following criteria:
  • Certified school-based health centers in the State of Oregon, or
  • Single sites or multiple site systems, or
  • Planning sites
  • Applicants must be a current member of the Oregon School-Based Health Alliance. Please direct questions about membership to Tammy Alexander, member services director,, 503.719.4515.
