Funder Seeks Applications for Healthy Eating Program

The Health Foundation of South Florida is accepting applications for its Evidence-Based & Innovative Programs in Children’s Settings program. It supports organizations working to implement evidence-based and innovative programs aimed at increasing children’s nutrition knowledge

Deadline: Rolling.

Knowing that good eating behaviors are instilled early on in life, the foundation is focused on increasing exposure to nutrition and physical activity education in a variety of children’s settings.

Priority will be given to projects focused on implementing evidence-based nutrition and physical activity programs (i.e., SPARK, CATCH); that demonstrate organizational and staff capacity to sustain the program through a train-the-trainer model or program institutionalization; that reach a significant number of children (minimum of 500); that demonstrate a high likelihood of sustainability.

Multiyear grants of up to $60,000 per year can be sued to support staff training (including travel) associated with the program; train-the-trainer costs; and purchase of equipment and program materials (e.g., ropes, cones, jump ropes, balls, etc.). The program will not provide support for salaries of existing staff; general operations; or scholarships, fee waivers, or activity/league fees for individual participants.

To be eligible, applicants must be a 501(c)(3) organization serving communities in south Florida.
