Healthy Eating Research: Building Evidence to Prevent Childhood Obesity is a national program of RWJF. 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 children, and children who live in lower-income communities (urban, suburban, and/or rural). Findings are expected to advance RWJF’s efforts to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic, eliminate disparities, and help all children achieve a healthy weight.
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 9 grants and RWJF New Connections grants awarded through the Healthy Eating Research program.
