About

The School Health Professional Grant Program (SHPG) is designed to provide funds to eligible education providers to enhance the presence of school health professionals in both elementary and secondary schools.

School Health Professionals are defined as School Nurses, School Psychologists, School Social Workers, and School Counselors.

This grant program intends to:

  • Increase the presence of licensed school health professionals to provide behavioral health education and intervention to students who are enrolled in elementary and secondary schools.
  • Provide training and resources to school staff for the implementation of evidence-based programming for behavioral health education and care for all students.
  • Allow school health professionals to connect students enrolled in elementary and secondary schools with services provided by community-based organizations for treatment and counseling.

The State Board of Education adopted Rules for the Administration of the School Health Professional Grant Program (CCR 301-97) (PDF)

The SHPG defined an eligible education provider as:

  • A school district (on behalf of one or more K-12 schools);
