Dakota County SHIP Grants

Funding Available for Dakota County, MN Public Schools

What is it?

The Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP) grant from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) awards funds for schools to implement physical activity. The research is clear that healthy students are better learners and that being successful in school, can have life-long positive effects on one’s health. Schools are an ideal setting to lay the foundation for health for all students – and this is where YOU play such a key role! Our Move Mindfully® residencies, workshops and consultation are approved services.

      Check with your county! Each has money from the department of health that they can allocate. The application process varies on county. Thank you!
