Funding Opportunity for Presidential Youth Fitness Program

An inaugural funding opportunity to support participation in the Presidential Youth Fitness Program is now available. Applications will be accepted online from April 1 through April 30, 2013.

This funding opportunity supports participation in the Presidential Youth Fitness Program for the 2013–2014 and 2014–15 school years by providing eligible schools with 100% of the elements that make up the three core pillars of the Presidential Youth Fitness Program for Year 1 and 50% matching support for Year 2.

For a school of 500 students, the dollar equivalent for funding is $1,402 for Year 1 and $526 for Year 2. Schools that are selected to receive funding will not receive a check to purchase materials or supplies. The core program elements will be sent directly to the school from the supplier.
