Arkansas Grant Initiative for SBHCs

The Arkansas School-Based Health Center Grant is a competitive application process made possible and supported by Arkansas’ Governor Mike Beebe and the Arkansas Tobacco Excise Tax created by Arkansas Act 180 of 2009. The funds are to be used to promote health, wellness, and academic achievement in Arkansas’ public schools. The program is a collaboration of the Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) Office of School Health Services (SHS), Arkansas Department of Health (ADH), Arkansas Department of Human Services (DHS) and Medicaid In the Schools (ARMITS).
