Grant Funding Available for Obesity Prevention Research and Projects

With funding from the Children's Fund of Connecticut, CHDI is pleased to announce a request for proposals (RFP) to further our work targeting obesity prevention among children ages birth through two. Results are expected to inform and advance efforts by policymakers, practitioners, program staff and advocates committed to preventing and reducing early childhood obesity in Connecticut.

This is the second round of grant funding from the Children's Fund of Connecticut. In 2015, the Children's Fund awarded four obesity prevention grants in the areas of policy development, health messaging, data development and baby friendly hospitals.
