Health and Nutrition Portfolio Plan May Update

By Stephanie Heim, Associate Program Director and Renee Obrecht-Como, Program Operations Director

Summer may come after all! It’s hard to believe that we find ourselves nearly halfway through 2015. The Portfolio Plan was developed as a tool for the Health and Nutrition (H&N) team to connect the dots on its collective work. As mentioned in the team’s March 24 blog post, we will be providing regular updates on our work. With that in mind, here’s a snapshot of the latest Food for Thought blog post on the Portfolio Plan:
  1. Family Development announces a reorganized leadership structure that reflects the commitment of its leaders to H&N’s portfolio plan. H&N is also adding staff to increase the impact of our work.
  2. The SNAP-Ed Community Partnership Funding initiative (formerly known as the SNAP-Ed Opportunity Identification Initiative) has welcomed a new coordinator and a Request for Proposal solicitation is scheduled to be issued this fall. This initiative will give us an opportunity to learn from our partner organizations — our primary audience in 2015.
  3. Work is accelerating to analyze and broaden our work across the Spectrum of Prevention to include Policy, Systems, and Environment, and Constituent Relationship Management systems.
  4. New SNAP-Ed and EFNEP Plans will be completed by the end of June.
