Grant Opportunity - Botvin LifeSkills Training Program - Middle School

The grant is for all districts and youth-serving community organizations, serving middle school aged youth, but priority will be given to those schools and organizations serving youth and communities in greatest need or risk of substance use, as well as those sites who were funded for the program in SY 2016-17 and plan to fund a new cohort of students.

The grant will pay for all student and teacher materials for all students in your school or site that will participate in the curriculum. It will also pay for the required instructor and data collection training as well as a stipend for data entry.

Grant applications can be submitted through iGrants, a secure application within OSPI’s Education Data System.  Eligible applicants include school districts, charter school districts, tribal compact schools, public schools, colleges/universities, and non-profit organizations.  The LifeSkills Training Middle School grant application is form package 761.  The grant is due by Sept. 21.  Applications will be accepted and approved on a rolling basis until all grant funds are committed.  Earlier submission is encouraged to determine training needs and secure funds.
