Upcoming School Nurse Grant Opportunity

The Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) Office of Healthy Schools in partnership with the Mississippi State Department of Health will provide an upcoming grant opportunity to increase the number of school nurses.

Up to $4.6 million has been allocated to the state through the CDC COVID-19 Public Health Workforce Supplemental Funding to achieve this goal. Grant funds may be used to hire additional nurses, contract for nursing services or increase the number of hours for part-time school nurses.
