OBJECTIVES:
The Carol M. White Physical Education Program provides grants to
initiate, expand, or enhance physical education programs, including
after-school programs, for students in one or more grades from
kindergarten through 12th grade in order to help students make
progress toward meeting State standards for physical education.

ELIGIBILITY
Eligible applicants are local educational agencies (LEAs) and
community-based organizations (CBOs), including faith-based
organizations provided that they meet the applicable statutory and
regulatory requirements.

FUNDING
Total estimated available funds are $38,850,000. Contingent upon
the availability of funds, the sponsor may make additional awards in FY
2008 from the rank-ordered list of unfunded applicants from this
competition.

The estimated range of awards is $100,000 to $500,000. The estimated
average award is $300,000. The sponsor expects to make 112 awards.
The project period is up to 36 months. The federal share of project
costs may not exceed: 90 percent of the total cost of a program for
the first year for which the program receives assistance; and 75
percent of such costs for the second and each subsequent such
year.
