NEW FUNDING ANNOUNCEMENT: SODIUM REDUCTION IN COMMUNITIES PROGRAM
The application deadline date is June 18, 2013.
The CDC National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion is excited to announce that the funding opportunity announcement NCCDPHP – CDC-RFA-DP13-1301:  “Sodium Reduction in Communities Program,” has been published on www.grants.gov.  The purpose of this program is to reduce sodium intake to limits recommended by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2010. Because the majority of sodium that people consume is already present in foods before purchase or preparation, reducing sodium intake may require increased availability and accessibility of lower sodium items. Because community-wide efforts to reduce sodium intake are relatively new, more practice-based evidence would support identification and refinement of effective strategies. Therefore, this program aims to increase access to lower sodium food in communities and to simultaneously continue to build practice-based evidence around effective population-based strategies to reduce sodium consumption.

National Innovative Partnerships for Addressing Obesity through Environmental Supports for Nutrition and Physical Activity Grant
Purpose: CDC is issuing this FOA as one of many efforts to reverse the U.S. obesity epidemic and to prevent projected obesity-related health and economic consequences. CDC seeks to create or enhance national innovative collaborations to raise awareness, engage in collective action, and facilitate environmental and system improvements that promote healthy eating and physical activity in places where individuals live, learn, and work (e.g., child care centers, hospital and medical care facilities, workplaces, communities, and schools). Under this FOA, organizations will receive funding to increase awareness of and promote implementation of environmental and system supports across states, at least one in each of the ten HHS regions, to create healthier places and lead to improvements in healthy eating and physical activity behaviors across the U.S. HHS; Department of Health and Human Services: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention http://www07.grants.gov/search/search.do?&mode=VIEW&oppId=233793
