Drop Sugary Drinks! Grant Opportunity
The Notah Begay III (NB3) Foundation’s national program, Native Strong is pleased to announce its 2017 “Drop Sugary Drinks!” Grant Request For Applications (RFA). This 10-month funding opportunity, made possible by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, will expand NB3F’s support of Native American communities working to improve the health of young children. Applications will be accepted from tribes and Native-led organizations across the country that specifically focus on the reduction of sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) and increase the consumption of healthy beverage alternatives (such as water, breastfeeding, indigenous teas, etc.) for young children (0-8).
Tribes and Native-led organizations working to significantly reduce sugary drinks and to increase the consumption of healthy beverage alternatives (such as water, breastfeeding, indigenous teas, etc.) may apply for a grant between $10,000 and $40,000. Considering communities are at various stages of addressing SSB consumption, applicants may use the funding to focus oneither of the two following areas: Community Health Assessments OR Implementation of Plans (based off previously conducted assessments and plans).
An informational webinar will be held on April 18th, 2017 at 11:00 am MST. Participation is highly encouraged. To register, click here
