New York State Department of Health (DOH) - Bureau of Community Chronic Disease Prevention (BCCDP) - State Physical Activity and Nutrition (SPAN) Program
02/04/20 4:00 PM
Grants are available to New York nonprofits, municipalities, including health centers, IHEs, and Tribal organizations, for programs that will encourage healthy eating habits and physical activity for people of all ages. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to applying. Funding is intended to develop and implement a comprehensive, community-based participatory approach to increasing opportunities for physical activity and improved nutrition for people across the age span. This program has two components: A (local) and B (statewide).
This RFA aims to reach high-need communities statewide, including cities, towns, reservations, and neighborhoods. The Department has defined five regions (Western, Central, Capital, Metropolitan Area, and New York City) and identified eligible communities in these regions. Communities are eligible when 40% or more of their population is not non-Hispanic White and/or where the percent of people living in high-need block groups is above the regional mean. For additional information about geographic area, see Page 16 of the RFA in Attached Files, below.
Funded organizations will establish and expand local public health efforts to readily implement evidence-based physical activity and nutrition strategies that build on existing community assets and coalitions, allowing for the flexibility to tailor interventions that meet the unique needs of communities, and leverage resources from multiple stakeholders and sectors (e.g. early child care, local government, faith-based, business and industry, community recreation and parks, mass media, transportation, community planning and design, and education) in high-need communities of New York State.
To accomplish the expectations of this RFA, an implementation model using local-level organizations, supported by a statewide training and technical assistance center, will work within high-need communities, engage a variety of partners and decision-makers, and develop and execute a comprehensive implementation plan. Successful applicants will leverage other community resources necessary to fully implement the initiative and sustain it beyond the five-year term.
For information about scope of work and major tasks, see Pages 18-31 (for Component A) and Pages 31-34 (for Component B), of the RFA in Attached Files, below.
