A new funding opportunity is available from Healthy Eating
Research, a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson
Foundation committed to building a culture of health through
identifying effective strategies to improve children’s nutrition
and prevent childhood obesity. This funding opportunity is
focused on the impact of COVID-19 recovery policies on child
health and well-being.
Healthy Eating Research is interested in understanding how social and economic programs and policies related to poverty reduction—such as financial payments to families, income assistance programs, housing assistance or housing security programs, and increased access to social services—impact child obesity, diet quality, food security, and other relevant child and family health outcomes among lower-income and families of color.
Applications are being accepted now, with brief concept papers due by November 17, 2021 at 3 p.m. ET.
