Healthy Eating Research 2023 Call for Proposals

Purpose: The purpose of this call for proposals (CFP) is to generate evidence on supportive family policies and programs that have strong potential to impact equitable access to nutritious food in communities, nutrition security, diet quality, and improved nutrition and health outcomes. We are especially interested in strategies to improve health outcomes for families with lower income and/or experiencing higher health needs. Findings will be used to guide and inform decisionmaking about policy and system changes that can advance nutrition equity and improve health. Through this CFP, we seek to learn what works (or not), why, and under what circumstances; who benefits the most from these policies and programs; and if disparity gaps are reduced. We are interested in solution-oriented research that focuses on policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) change at the national, state, local, and tribal levels. The PSE research strategies can focus on how to strengthen or build on existing policies or programs; evaluation of current policies or programs; or designing and pilot-testing new innovative programs that are policy relevant. We are also interested in PSE research that is more developmental in nature but has potential for policy and systems impact in addressing nutrition inequities
