Technical assistance and direction for RWJF's Intergenerational Programming with Active for Life to Reduce Childhood Obesity program

The Foundation's program, Intergenerational Programming with Active for Life to Reduce Childhood Obesity, was designed to support efforts of senior service organizations to increase access to healthy, lower calorie foods and opportunities for safe, daily physical activity through policy and environmental change among children living in low income, culturally diverse neighborhoods and communities. This grant will enable the Texas A&M Active for Life National Program Office to provide technical assistance and direction to four selected sites with awards of about $45,000 each. The 12- to 18-month, mini-grant pilot projects are designed to explore innovative solutions that will promote healthy eating and active living through intergenerational programming using a combination of programmatic and policy levers.
