PDE Announces School Behavioral Health RFP
July 8, 2009

The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) has announced the availability of special education School-Based Behavioral Health performance grants for the 2009/10 school year. The performance grants are designed to support the development of a continuum of behavioral health prevention and intervention services for students. The grant requires that the schools applying for the grant develop their project in collaboration with one or more community behavioral health providers. Local schools, school districts, charter schools, approved private schools, and Intermediate Units are encouraged to consider this funding opportunity and apply. PDE will hold a webinar for interested school officials and community provider partners on July 30. The submission deadline for the grant is August 28.
