Support for COVID-19 Screening Testing in Schools

The Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services is launching an expanded COVID-19 screening testing program to support public and private K-12 schools in protecting students and staff from the spread of COVID-19. The program will launch in fall 2021 and schools can register to participate beginning in August. Supported by a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the program will provide participating schools access to COVID-19 rapid tests and other testing options. Please review the following fact sheets about various funding opportunities available through this program.
