New Connections Grants Awarded through the Healthy Eating Research Program
|Purpose:||Healthy Eating Research: Building Evidence to Prevent Childhood Obesity is a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) national program. The program supports research on environmental and policy strategies with strong potential to promote healthy eating among children to prevent childhood obesity, especially among groups at highest risk for obesity: black, Latino, American Indian, Asian/Pacific Islander, and children who live in lower-income communities (urban, suburban, and/or rural).
Findings are expected to advance RWJF’s efforts to help all children achieve a healthy weight, promote health equity, and build a Culture of Health.
This call for proposals (CFP) is for two types of awards aimed at providing advocates, decision-makers, and policymakers with evidence to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic. The award types are: Round 10 grants and RWJF New Connections grants awarded through the Healthy Eating Research program.
|Receipt Date:||June 1, 2016, 3:00 PM ET|
Approximately $2.6 million will be awarded under this CFP for the two award types. The anticipated allocation of funds will be awarded through the Healthy Eating Research program. Awards will be for 12- to 18-month grants of up to $100,000 each.
