Funding Opportunity: CDPHE Comprehensive Human Sexuality Education

 

The Comprehensive Human Sexuality Education Program is excited to announce a 1-year (July 1, 2021 - June 30, 2022) funding opportunity for all Colorado public schools, school districts, board of cooperative services, charter schools, or institute charter schools. Applicants may request up to $25,000.

This funding may be used to build readiness and capacity for comprehensive human sexuality education in alignment with House Bill 19-1032 including, but not limited to the following activities: community engagement, stakeholder buy-in, professional development and training for staff, selecting curricula, school/district level policy development, readiness assessments, purchasing materials or technology, and piloting instruction.


We have tried to keep this process simple and will hopefully only take a short amount of time to complete. Applications are due by April 2, 2021 at 5pm.
