American Rescue Plan Act Implementation

Equipping health champions to strengthen staff and student well-being during school re-opening

Afterschool or expanded learning programs are at the forefront of supporting students and families during the pandemic.  As schools and out of school times programs across the country gear up for in-person learning again, they seek to expand program offerings and support the social emotional well-being of students and staff alike after a stressful, even traumatic year.

To help meet this challenge, the federal government passed a $1.9 trillion stimulus package called the American Rescue Plan, which makes available $168 billion for K-12 schools and higher education. Learn more about the American Rescue Plan.   

Healthier Generation is here to help. We’ll work with you and your team to: 

  • re-engage youth into a safe and welcoming environment  

  • skillfully address the trauma, stress or anxiety among youth and adults 

  • re-integrate into a new learning routine.
