IPHI is one of 15 recipients of the Healthcare Initiative Foundations FY18 Capacity Building Grants. The award of $25,000 will support the implementation of Local School Wellness Councils (LSWCs) in public schools in Montgomery County, Maryland. IPHI is currently working with Montgomery County Public Schools through the Healthy Montgomery Transforming Communities Initiative to implement LSWCs in 15 initial pilot schools within the County. Next year, with the help of the HIF grant award, IPHI and MSPS will work to expand LSWCs to many more schools.
