Grants of up to $20,000 to Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin Native American nonprofit organizations and tribal governments to develop culturally appropriate childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes prevention strategies. Applicants must register to attend the December 15 informational webinar.
The purpose of the 2015 Seeds of Native Health Capacity Building Grant is to better understand the root causes of childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes through:
1) Community Health Assessments (new or ongoing) focused on healthy nutrition and healthy food access, built environment, physical activity and/or socio-economic demographics (i.e. focus groups, literature reviews, mapping, surveying, etc.).
2) Community Planning and Capacity Building focused on healthy nutrition and healthy food access, built environment, physical activity and/or socio-economic demographics (i.e. host stakeholder convenings, coalition building and collaboration efforts).
As a deliverable of this grant, grant recipients will create an action plan based on their work that will focus on long-term planning. Specifically, the action plan will identify strategies and recommendations to address childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes in their communities.
