Grants to Iowa LEAs to develop the capacity of health workers during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The purpose of the program is to provide training and resources to school health workers for programs with a focus on improving the Social-Emotional-Behavioral-Health of students.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) awarded funding to eligible jurisdictions on the approved but unfunded (ABU) list for CDC-FFATP18-1802 to establish, expand, train, and sustain the state, tribal, local, and territorial (STLT) governments public health workforce jurisdictional COVID-19 prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery initiatives, including school-based health programs.The Iowa Departments of Public Health (IDPH) and Education (IDOE) propose to use the dollars from Iowa’s portion of the CDC’s allocation that must be directed to schools to train and sustain our school health workforce to support Iowa’s COVID-19 response and recovery initiatives through school-based health programs focused on Social-Emotional-Behavioral-Health (SEBH). Funding for the grant will facilitate the need to train personnel to address COVID-19 response needs over the performance period by building capacity to address one of our school health priorities, namely to address the SEBH needs of Iowa’s children that are deriving from coping with SEBH needs during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

The purpose of this grant allows districts to increase their coverage of capacity building necessary to meet the increased need for SEBH-related capacity as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Activities and services include expanding professional development opportunities and workforce for coaching. 

Competitive applications should prioritize SEBH needs surrounding diversity, inclusion and health equity.
