In early October, MDH was notified that it would receive $537,218 in grant funds for FY2010. Now, MDH must complete a “Post-Award State Plan” by February 1 to draw down its award dollars. Many of these dollars will be sub-granted to school districts adopting the CHART model policy for the purpose of implementing comprehensive sex education programs. Other dollars will fund MDH-provided training and technical assistance for school personnel in districts implementing a PREP sub-grant.
Mississippi First is thrilled to be an integral part of this exciting development. We will keep you updated on the project’s progress through our Update, blog, and website.
