Step 3: Complete and submit application form and W-9
A letter of support from a school administrator is also required; this may be submitted at the same time as you complete the application, or it may be submitted afterwards. If you are a school administrator, please write a brief letter explaining why you are applying for a school health grant. DPHHS will not process your grant application until we have received a letter of support.
If filling out a hard copy application, please mail or fax (406-444-7465) the completed form to:
Montana School Health Program
PO Box 202951
Helena, MT 59620
Step 4: Await notification
After you submit the application and letter of support, your application will be reviewed within two weeks. If you do not hear from the School Health Program within two weeks, please contact us to confirm that we have received your application materials. Since applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, please submit your application as soon as you are able.
Step 5: Complete the project
Once you are notified that you have been awarded a grant, plan and carry out the project that you have selected. Contact the School Health Program for additional resources if needed.
Step 6: Return outcomes forms
After you have completed the project, you will need to return the outcomes report form for your project, as well as any other additional documents noted on the outcomes report. For the 2017 project cycle, outcomes report forms will be due by May 31, 2018. If you have any further questions, please contact BJ Biskupiak at (406) 444-0995.
Word is getting out to your communities about your projects! The School Health Program will send a press release to your local area newspaper to highlight the great work you're doing in your school or district.
