Back to SBHC funding opportunities

* This Funding Opportunity is Closed *
Due to the complexity of creating interagency relationships necessary for the successful planning and operation of a school-based health center as well as the necessary time and resources, CDPHE provides planning-to-operations awards to help communities prepare for implementing a new school-based health center. To that end, the SBHC Program is releasing this two-year Planning-to-Operations Request for Applications (RFA) as a competitive funding opportunity to establish new school-based health centers in Colorado.
