The severity of childhood obesity in the United States was brought to light by First Lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move!" initiative, and since then, more and more private and federal funders are providing financial support for nationwide efforts to tackle the problem.

Listen to veteran grants analyst Frank Klimko, editor of Children and Youth Funding Report, and long-time grantwriter Ray Sweeney, editor of Federal & Foundation Assistance Monitor, in the 75-minute archived audio conference, Finding New Funding to Fight Childhood Obesity, as they explore a wide range of childhood obesity funding opportunities and how to best position your organization to win funding. Nearly all federal agencies have joined the effort to end childhood obesity, and numerous private entities are rearranging or enhancing their priorities to focus more on childhood obesity prevention and education.

Foundation, corporate and federal funding is available for a wide range of programs that affect children's health, including:

  • Nutrition;
  • Community planning;
  • Transportation;
  • Education;
  • Research;
  • Physical education;
  • Sports programs; and
  • After-school activities.

In Finding New Funding to Fight Childhood Obesity you'll learn:

  • Where to look for childhood obesity funding;
  • The research and boards that are setting the funding agenda;
  • Insights on best practices to readily adapt in your community; and
  • Valuable information on the types of partnerships that are needed.

Many funding sources for obesity prevention are not immediately obvious. If you work with children in education, healthcare, recreation, youth programs, and many other settings, you'll want Finding New Funding to Fight Childhood Obesity to find out about funding sources your program could very well benefit from.
