The Hold On To Dear Life® campaign was established at Primary Children's Hospital in 1991 to educate the community on how to keep children safe. The original campaign focused on child restraint/seat belt use and later child abuse prevention. In the last few years, it has been broadened to include the award-winning, Spot the Tot program and other injury prevention topics.

School Mini-Grant Application

Thank you for your interest in this grant opportunity from Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital. These grants are generously funded in part by the Kohls Cares Foundation. The purpose of these grants are to support school districts in planning, preparing, and implementing the new Utah Core State Standards for Health Education in elementary schools. Of particular interest is embedding the mental health strand into school curriculum for younger grades (K-3). Please complete the following application for consideration. Fields with an asterisk are required. Application deadline closes Nov. 15. The goal of this grant is to provide funding to Districts who may not have support from other streams. Therefore, Districts who have received funding through Project Aware grant or the Garrett Lee Smith Grant will be ranked lower in the scoring process, but may still apply.

Timeline:

Application Launches: Oct 1

Deadline: Nov 15
