Grants of up to $50,000 each to Salem County, New Jersey nonprofits, faith-based organizations, government agencies, and public schools for proposals that focus on preventing childhood obesity and teen pregnancy. LOIs are due on January 2. Before submitting the LOI, applicants must meet with Foundation Staff to discuss your proposal. The goal of these grants is to reduce health disparities among vulnerable children and adolescents in Salem County. Priorities for each of the two focus areas are outlined below.
Objective: Reduce Childhood Obesity by Promoting Healthier Eating Habits and Lifestyles and Nutrition Education
Funding will be provided for proposals that focus on improving nutrition and reducing childhood obesity in Salem County. The Foundation will focus its efforts to address the critical nutrition issues through the following venues: Educational settings; Emergency food and Social Service Providers; Clinical and Health Care Providers; Food Access and Food Retail; and Community Health and Wellness Providers.
- Educational Settings (School Districts, Day Care Providers, After School Programs): To support programs and policies that will expand opportunities for physical activity and nutrition among Salem County’s children, educators and caregivers.
- Emergency Food and Social Service Providers: To support programs and policies that will improve food security and increase access to fresh fruits and vegetables among clients of food assistance programs.
The goal of this Initiative is to support children and families in establishing healthy lifestyles. The most competitive proposals for this RFP will incorporate multi-faceted approaches across multiple strategies (programs that target behavior, policy, and environment changes). Organizations are asked to select one of the following two goal areas to address in their proposal:
Goal #1: To support programs and policies that will improve nutrition and physical activity among Salem County’s children, educators, and caregivers.
- Objective #1: Increase consumption of healthy foods and beverages including fruits, vegetables, water, low-fat milk, and whole grains and reduce the consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages.1
- Objective #2: Increase physical activity among young people to meet the goal of 60 minutes every day and reduce use of “screen time” to less than 2 hours per day.
Gaol #2: To support programs and policies that will improve food security and increase access to fresh fruits and vegetables among lower-income, food insecure Salem County residents.
- Objective #1: To increase access to fresh fruits and vegetables and other healthier options (lean meats, lower sodium) for Salem County families receiving emergency food.
- Objective #2: To provide tailored nutrition education to Salem County families receiving emergency food.
Teen Pregnancy RFP:
Objective: To reduce unwanted teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, and increase access to health education, for young people in Salem County.
This focus area focuses on two program areas.
Program Area 1: Support evidence based programs and proven intervention strategies to prevent teen pregnancy and build protective factors, especially among middle school aged students in the communities of the City of Salem and Penns Grove and Carneys Point.
Program Area 2: Build the capacity of parents, community leaders and stakeholders and other adults in the community to support young people in preventing teen pregnancy and risky sexual behaviors to prevent sexually transmitted infections. The program areas lay a foundation for long-term change by supporting teens, and their families, through enhancing community readiness and infrastructure.
Total Funding Levels:
- The total funding level for the Teen Pregnancy RFP is $200,000. Through the Teen Pregnancy RFP, the Foundation anticipates funding one to two projects within each of the two program areas for up to a maximum of $50,000 each.
- The total funding level for the Nutrition RFP is $150,000. Through this initiative, the Foundation anticipates funding three to four projects for up to a maximum of $50,000 each.
