1 American Heart Association Voices for Healthy Kids Strategic Campaign Fund Grant Application Thank you for your interest in the AHA/RWJF Strategic Campaign Fund s award opportunity. This funding is intended to support strategic issue advocacy campaigns focused on fighting childhood obesity through state and local public policy campaigns aligned with the Voices for Healthy Kids policy priorities. Funded campaigns must align with the Voices for Healthy Kids policy priorities which can be found at Overview Over the past four decades, obesity rates have soared among all age groups. Today, nearly onethird of children and adolescents in the United States are either overweight or obese. [1] Obese and overweight children and adolescents are more likely to become obese adults, [2],[3] placing them at increased risk for type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, hypertension and certain forms of cancer. [4] Together, the American Heart Association (AHA) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) are working to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic in the United States and to decrease racial, ethnic and income disparities in prevalence. The Voices for Healthy Kids Strategic Campaign Fund is awarding grants with a mix of lobbying and non-lobbying resources to support strategic issue advocacy campaigns focused on fighting childhood obesity through state, local, and tribal public policy campaigns aligned with the Voices for Healthy Kids policy priorities. Applications must be specific to an individual campaign for public policy change in one state, local or tribal geographic location. Specifically, grantee proposals must be: Impactful: The specific binding policy being pursued must actually deliver population impact Viable and Promising: The application must be engaged in a viable and promising childhood obesity public policy effort Supported by Match: The applicant will commit a small amount of its own funds and resources that will provide critical ownership, additional advocacy operations, and increase the potential for sustainability Compliant: Grantees must follow compliance requirements mandated by the AHA. Priority will be given to campaigns reaching the highest need populations and/or those with the greatest potential to impact wider movement-building impact and momentum.
