Voices for Healthy Kids Grants Available


Voices for Healthy Kids, a joint initiative of the American Heart Association and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, is offering three separate types of grants for those working in the childhood obesity movement.

Strategic Campaign Funds, open RFA grant opportunities, are awards of up to $90,000 for a period of one year or less. These grants go to fund advocacy campaigns focused on fighting childhood obesity at the local, state or tribal policy levels.

Rapid Response grants range from $15,000 to $100,000 for two-to-six week periods. These grants go to fund short-term, reactive projects that encourage support for public policy changes within three to six months. This funding is for non-lobbying activities only.

Finally, Strategically Directed Tools are grants ranging from $20,000 to $80,000 to support lobbying activities related to an advocacy campaign on fighting childhood obesity at the state, local or tribal level. The duration of these grants will vary.

Each of the grants are available on a rolling deadline basis, and more information is available online.
