The Notah Begay III Foundation has announced a Request for Proposals for the Native Strong: Healthy Kids, Healthy Futures grant program.
The purpose of the program is to partner with Native communities to better understand the root causes of childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes, resulting in strategies and an action plan to address the issue.
Grants of up to $20,000 each will be awarded.
Applications will be accepted from grantees anywhere in the U.S. Priority will be given, however, to grantees from the Southwest (New Mexico, Arizona), the Upper Midwest (Minnesota, Wisconsin), and the Southern Plains (Oklahoma, Texas).
