Request for Proposals: School-Based Health Centers in Greater Cincinnati
Interact for Health will provide funding, resources and support for high-need Pre-K through 12th grade schools and health provider partners to plan and open school-based health centers (SBHCs). Providing health services in schools increases access to health care for students and the school community. There is strong evidence that SBHCs improve both health and educational outcomes, particularly for low-income students and students of color. In these communities, co-located services can reduce and eliminate barriers to receiving health care such as transportation and finding time to attend appointments.
SBHC Learning Group: Those not yet in an established school-health provider partnership can apply to participate in the SBHC Learning Group. Applications for the learning group will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
