RFP for Healthier US Schools Mini Grant through HHS Office of Minorities Health


Dear Friends,


This mini-grant is a great opportunity for innovative school health teams at 5  public schools across the country in low-income and underserved areas to receive $5,000 to help their school meet the USDA's Healthier US Schools Challenge. Awardees will be nationally recognized as supporting First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move campaign!


Applicants must be individual (non-charter) public schools located in the 50 states, and the District of Columbia that participate in the National School Lunch Program and have a low-income student population of 80% or greater (as determined by percentage of students eligible for free and reduced school meals). Not-for-profit organizations that have been directed by a school to apply for the award are also eligible. Applicants must also be official USDA Team Nutrition Schools.

It is not the avoidance of conflict that leads to peace; it is the responsible and respectful handling of differences that establishes peaceful principles.


There are two kinds of people, those who do the work and those who take the credit. Try to be in the first group; there is less competition there." Indira Gandhi


A leader is best when people barely know he exists.
Not so good when people obey and acclaim him.
Worse when they despise him.
Fail to honor people,
They fail to honor you.
But of a good leader, who talks little
When his work is done, his aim fulfilled,
The people will say, "We did this ourselves."
- Lao-tsu
