Coming soon to a community near you: SNAP-Ed’s Community Partnership Funding!
This initiative has a new name and a new timeline, but the same goal: to learn from our partners throughout the state about ways to incorporate policy, system, and environmental changes in organizations and communities in order to promote healthy eating and active living for Minnesotans with limited financial resources. The projects funded through this initiative will also help guide future Extension SNAP-Ed work.
|Organizations will look at the big picture and think|
about how to achieve SNAP-Ed goals by influencing
policy, systems, and environmental change
(the top four levels of the Spectrum of Prevention). Read more »
Health and Nutrition staff at all levels will be involved, from sharing the RFP and information about the initiative with current and potential partners, to helping organizations to develop proposals, to working with the organizations that are awarded contracts. Extension evaluation staff will also be involved to evaluate the projects.
The RFP will be issued June 29, with projects set to kick off this fall. For more information, visit the website: z.umn.edu/communitypartnership. Please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Project Coordinator Jackie Billhymer (email@example.com) with any questions or ideas.
