Nutrition and Physical Activity Programs for Native Youth Funded
The Notah Begay III Foundation: Promising Program Grants
The Notah Begay III Foundation's Promising Program Grants initiative will partner with Native communities to support projects that target childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes prevention through existing youth focused physical activity or healthy nutrition programs. Preference will be given to organizations from the Southwest (Arizona, New Mexico), the Upper Midwest (Minnesota, Wisconsin), and the Southern Plains (Oklahoma, Texas); however, applications will be accepted from throughout the U.S. Recipients of these grants should be currently implementing programs for youth that increase physical activity and get kids moving while providing a safe place to play, or healthy nutrition programs that can include nutrition education and increasing access to healthy and affordable foods. Grants of up to $40,000 will be awarded. U.S. based Native American-controlled nonprofit organizations, tribal governments, and Native American community-based groups with a 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsor are eligible to apply. The application deadline is July 14, 2014. Visit the Foundation’s website to download the Request for Proposals.
