Title I: Increasing the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged
The largest source of federal funding to schools is from Title I, providing over $14 billion dollars to schools with high-poverty populations. If your school received Title I funding, your school is required to use a percentage of the grant to fund "safe and healthy school activities" directly complementing the GrowFit curriculum.

The newly enacted bipartisan Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) includes a flexible block grant program known as Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grants (SSAEG) under Title IV Part A, which is authorized at $1.65 billion in fiscal year 2017. Title IV, Part A authorizes supporting safe and healthy students with comprehensive school mental health, drug and violence prevention, training on trauma-informed practices, and health and physical education. GrowFit directly supports a comprehensive health and physical education curriculum for students K-8.
