Posted By Administration, Tuesday, March 20, 2012

The National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research (NCCOR) announces a new funding opportunity from Healthy Eating Research (HER). HERis a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation(RWJF), one of NCCOR's funders.

HER supports research on environmental and policy strategies with strong potential to promote healthy eating among children to prevent childhood obesity, especially among low-income and ethnically diverse populations which are at higher risk for obesity. Findings are expected to advance RWJF's efforts to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic by 2015.

This Call for Proposals (CFP) announces two types of awards aimed at providing key decision- and policy makers with evidence to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic.

The award types are:

  • Round 7 Grants

The deadline for concept papers forRWJFNew ConnectionsGrants is May 22, 2012.

Those whose concept papers are received by the deadline and accepted will be notified and invited to submit full proposals. Approximately $1.9 million will be awarded under this CFP for the two award types.
