||CDC is pleased to announce the availability of funds for a new cooperative agreement, aimed at developing national innovative partnerships for addressing obesity, through its National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity (DNPAO). The National Innovative Partnerships FOA will support public health efforts to prevent and reduce obesity by promoting the implementation of environmental and system supports that create healthier places and lead to improvements in healthy eating and physical activity behaviors across the United States. This FOA seeks to foster the development of innovative – new and creative – collaborations with public and private, public health and non-public health organizations which lead to successful implementation of evidence- and practice-based obesity prevention strategies especially in populations experiencing disproportionately high rates of obesity.The FOA has three funding component areas:
- Physical activity with informational outreach;
- Healthy, affordable food and beverages;
- Breastfeeding duration and support.
