The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) is excited to announce that they are accepting applications for the School-Based Behavioral Health Peer Support Services grant.

They are awarding up to three (3) 12-month grants with up to $65,000 for behavioral health peer support services projects in Washington schools. The projects should focus on communities and populations that have received limited health care opportunities or have not been served due to past policy decisions.

Applicants may be:

  • A community-based non-profit organization.
  • Public school entities like a school, school district, or Educational Service District, including charter and locally or federally operated tribal schools.
  • A health care organization sponsoring a school-based health center.

Projects must serve a school with a high proportion of students (60% or more) from a historically underserved community or population. Please see the RFA for more information.

Applications are due by 11:59 PM Pacific Standard Time on February 16, 2024. For more information and to apply, visit the WA Portal page.

If you have any questions about the request for funding applications (RFA), please email AdolescentHealthUnit@doh.wa.gov. They will post answers to frequently asked questions each week on the WA Portal page.

Please share this opportunity with anyone who may be interested.
