United Health Foundation and Whole Kids Foundation know the health and nutrition of a child are important to all parents. Therefore, in a joint effort they developed a nationwide grant program. Today’s announcement is sponsored by United Health Foundation; all options are my own.
The United Health Foundation and Whole Kids Foundation plan to announce a nationwide grant program. Which will be open to educators, individuals and nonprofit organizations to develop innovative programs that provide solutions to improve elementary school age children’s health through nutrition.
The grants are part of United Health Foundation’s “Helping Build Healthier Communities” program, which provides resources to local nonprofits that have programs aimed at expanding access to care, improving health outcomes and building healthier communities. The first grant is being officially launched at West Vernon Elementary, one of the public schools submitting a letter of intent for a grant. The program will fund 10 to 12 projects. Grants, which range from $15,000 to $25,000, will be awarded in early 2016.
Grant deadlines and timeline Letters of intent for the program are due Nov. 30. Applications for the grant program are due Dec. 15, and the grantees will be announced in March 2016. The amount of each grant will range from $15,000 to $25,000. For more information on how to apply, visit www.wholekidsfoundation.org/health-kids-innovation or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
