Fuel Up to Play 60 (FUTP 60) is a leading national in-school health and wellness program launched by the National Football League (NFL) and National Dairy Council (NDC). Fuel Up to Play 60's primary focus is to help schools meet their wellness goals and encourage youth to consume nutrient-rich foods (low-fat and fat-free dairy, fruits, vegetables and whole grains and lean protein foods and achieve at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day).
To that end, FUTP 60 welcomes applications for funding in support of initiatives designed to improve healthy eating and physical activity opportunities at schools. Through the program, grants of up to $4,000 a year are available for qualified K-12 schools enrolled in Fuel Up to Play 60 to jump-start healthy changes among students. All applications must contain both Healthy Eating and Physical Activity Plans. Fuel Up to Play 60 monies and equipment/goods/services are meant to fund and stimulate activities that lead to lasting change within the school environment.
To be eligible, schools must be enrolled in Fuel Up to Play 60 for the school year and must participate in the National School Lunch Program. Schools must also have a Program Advisor signed up in order to submit the application.
