Applicants may choose to address mental health awareness and wellness, which would fall under the Unintentional Injuries and Violence category.
If a single project reaches multiple populations, the applicant should only submit one application. However, applicants should submit separate applications for each unrelated project.

Stat §145.928, Subds. 7(c) and 8(c) defines eligible applicants as: “Eligible applicants may include, but are not limited to, faith-based organizations, social service organizations, community nonprofit organizations, community health boards, and community clinics.” Since the list of examples of eligible applicants as stated in the RFP is not exclusive, charter schools are eligible to apply.
