Newman's Own Foundation & CT Health Foundation Award Grants to CHDI for Obesity Prevention

Newman's Own Foundation and the Connecticut Health Foundation have awarded grants totaling $55,000 to CHDI to augment funding of $140,000 from the Children’s Fund of Connecticut (CHDI's parent organization) to enhance CHDI's early childhood obesity prevention grant funding program.

Funded projects are expected to inform and advance efforts to reduce early childhood obesity in Connecticut, with a particular focus on addressing economic, racial and ethnic disparities.

Invited proposals, based on a review of Letters of Intent, are due June 30th and announcements of up to three grant awards will be made in the fall.
