Healthy Eating Active Communities – Implementation of Nutrition & PA Programs

December 9, 2015

This funding opportunity will support organizations in the implementation of evidence-based and innovative programs aimed at increasing children’s knowledge and attitudes toward healthy eating leading to healthier nutrition behavior change. Knowing that good eating behaviors are instilled early on in life, Health Foundation is focused on increasing exposure to nutrition and physical activity education in children settings. Priority will be given to projects that implement evidence-based nutrition and physical activity programs, like CATCH, and show organizational and staff capacity to sustain the program through a train-the-trainer model or institutionalization (i.e. core operating budget). Health Foundation is open to multi-year grants averaging $60,000 per year and accepts concept proposals year round.
