The Healthy Start Support Services for Children Act (Healthy Start Initiative) provided comprehensive, school-community integrated services and activities to improve the lives of children, youth, and families. The services included health, dental, and vision care; mental health counseling; family support and parenting education; academic support; health education; safety education and violence prevention; youth development; employment preparation; and others. The Healthy Start Initiative provided grants to local education agency partnerships for program development and implementation. The grant award criteria required schools with 50 percent of the students eligible for free and reduced meals in the lower grades and 35 percent eligible in middle through high schools. In addition, English learners were a targeted population. Planning, operational, and combined grants that included planning and implementation activities were awarded to local educational agencies and their collaborative partners for locally coordinated, school-linked services.
