Healthy Eating Research has released its 2018 Call for Proposals (CFP). This CFP is for two types of awards aimed at providing advocates, decision-makers, and policymakers with evidence to promote the health and well-being of children through nutritious foods and beverages.
The two types of funding opportunities included in this CFP are:
- Small-scale grants (up to $200,000 and 18 months)
- Large-scale grants (up to $500,000 and 24 months)
Research studies must focus on policy, systems, and environmental change approaches with strong potential to improve children's physical, socioemotional, and/or cognitive health and well-being through nutritious foods and beverages. Target age groups are infants, children, and adolescents (ages 0 to 18) and their families.
All studies must have the potential to impact groups at highest risk for poor health and well-being, and nutrition and weight-related health disparities. We are especially interested in studies focused on black or African American, Latino(a) or Hispanic, American Indian or Alaskan Native, Asian American, and native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander populations; and children living in lower-income rural and urban communities, with the aim of promoting equity.
A webinar for interested applicants will be held on Wednesday, June 6, 2018, from 3:00-4:00 p.m. ET. Registration is required to participate in this webinar. Click here to register.
