School Health Services Planning Grant

You are here


The Oregon School-Based Health Alliance  (OSBHA) is proud of conceptualizing and advocating for legislation that funded the School Health Services Planning Grant (RFGP 4855-0), issued by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA). This funding will support up to 12 school districts or ESDs to evaluate the need for school-based health services in their respective communities and will then fund up to 6 new school-based health centers and up to 4 sites to pilot a school nursing model. OHA has selected sites for Phase 1 funding, which provides $35,000. an in-depth needs assessment from January through June 2020. This assessment will evaluate site readiness and community need for school health services. Sites are required to consult with a nonprofit organization with experience organizing community projects or a local organization that coordinates with a statewide nonprofit organization which will facilitate the planning process and provide technical assistance.

OSBHA has developed the grid below to assist communities in understanding how opportunities and requirements of the School Health Services Planning Grant, the Student Success Act and CCO 2.0 align. We hope this will be helpful in planning for services that will support youth in achieving health and academic success.

OSBHA is offering consultation to School Health Services Planning grantees for technical assistance, needs assessment and planning process facilitation. To discuss consultation, please reach out to Maureen Hinman, OSBHA Director of Policy and Strategic Initiatives, at maureen@osbha.org.
