Healthy Lifestyles Energy Balance 101 Grant

National PTA’s Healthy Lifestyles Grants provide local PTAs with tools to use in partnering with schools and engaging families in improving awareness of energy balance. Energy balance is simply finding a balance between the calories we consume each day through what we eat and drink and the calories we burn though physical activity.

Goal

Local PTAs will:

  • Use the Energy Balance Enrichment Zone curricula to educate families on the importance of energy balance, good nutrition and physical activity in achieving an active, healthy lifestyle
  • Empower families to partner with schools to advocate for and support the implementation of healthy changes around nutrition and physical activity
  • Provide families with tools to create an environment at home that supports the positive changes at school

Funding Available

National PTA will award Healthy Lifestyles Grants of $2,000 to 25 local PTAs for grades K-5. Title 1 schools are strongly encouraged to apply.

Grant Terms

Grant funding must be spent between October 1, 2015 and April 30, 2016.
