PowerPlay! Beyond School Grant
Energizing Today's Youth Through Health, Nutrition and Fitness

The PowerPlay! Beyond School Grant is a program of the Illinois Association of Park Districts (IAPD). Funding and materials for this program are provided through the sale and subsequent renewals of the Park District Youth License Plate and through Friends of Illinois Parks.

The Model Program
The Power!Play Beyond School Grant Program involves implementing a model program that focuses on health, nutrition and fitness for children ages K-5th grade and 6th grade-12th grade. Each grant recipient must incorporate the core elements of the model program into their curriculum. Topics and materials in the model program were created to maximize the learning potential of participants in the program. Agencies will receive seed money to conduct a new model beyond school program or to enhance an existing one.

All IAPD member agencies are eligible for the PowerPlay! Beyond School Grant including park districts, forest preserves, conservation districts, recreation and special recreation agencies.

Grant Cycle
The 2014 grant cycle is currently closed.
