Grants in Los Angeles: Increase Physical Activity and Food Nutrition at schools


Applications due by Monday, September 16, 2013 at 11 pm.

Community Health Councils, through its REACH Demonstration Project Partners in Health, is offering grants from $25,000 to $35,000 to organizations to provide nutrition and/or physical activity resources at eight schools in South Los Angeles. Grants will be awarded to selected organizations to support the development and implementation of campus-based physical activity and/or nutrition resources and the establishment of a shared agreement with Los Angeles Unified School District as part of an overall effort to improve student wellness.

The funding range is $25,000-$35,000 per award over a period of 3 consecutive semesters.  The grants will be awarded in two rounds. The first round of funding will be organizations interested in developing and implementing physical activity and/or nutrition activities at Washington Prep High School and Fremont High School between Fall 2013 through Fall 2014. The grants will be issued on a competitive basis to community, service, faith-based organizations, and other qualified entities with a history of working in schools and South Los Angeles. Qualified organizations will be funded to implement campus-based programs targeting students, their parents and community members living within a ½ mile radius of the designated schools, along the following strategic priorities:

  • increase access to and consumption of healthy foods and/or
  • increase access to daily physical activity.

The organization should have a proven record of success implementing  culturally and age-appropriate, evidence-based practice (EBP) projects that serve multiple generations, students ages 5-17 and/or adults ages 18 and older. A complete Request for Proposals application packet is available on the Community Health Councils website.

    Hi Jessica! I would like to send this grant information to our TARC contacts and I can’t seem to find the RFP info on the Community Health Councils’ website. Do you happen to have a link?
