Healthy Eating Research Releases Call for Proposals

healthy eatingHealthy Eating Research is a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (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. Findings are expected to advance RWJF’s efforts to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic and help all children achieve a healthy weight. 

The Healthy Eating Research Special Solicitation call for proposals (CFP) is now open. This CFP focuses on childhood obesity prevention efforts in two settings: Healthy Food Retail and Early Care and Education.

Total Awards

Approximately $425,000 will be awarded under this CFP. Awards of up to 12 months and up to $75,000 each will be funded through this special solicitation. Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply for projects that require between $25,000 and $75,000 to complete. Approximately two-thirds of the funds available will be allocated to studies focused on healthy food retail and one-third will be allocated to studies focused on early care and education.

How To Apply

 

There are two stages in the application process, including an initial concept paper and a subsequent full proposal (if invited). Applicants must follow the instructions and use the templates provided in the RWJF online system.

The deadline for receipt of concept papers is January 7, 2015 (3 p.m. ET).
