NCCOR funding opportunities page highlighted

July 16, 2012, NCCOR

The Directors of Health Promotion and Education (DHPE) has acknowledged and promoted NCCOR’s funding opportunities webpage.

In a recent blog post the organization said, “The National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research has put together a nice compilation of related funding opportunities on their site.”

The NCCOR website,, underwent a redesign in 2012 to expand and enhance its communication methods, improving both functionality and user experience. The Collaborative uses various social media platforms to promote opportunities in childhood obesity research and increase its influence among current and new audiences.

NCCOR’s funding opportunities webpage summarizes current and past funding opportunities generated by NCCOR members and others, such as universities and nonprofit organizations. The content can be sorted by funder, title, funding amount, receipt date, and whether the opportunity is rapid response. Rapid response is defined as an opportunity with several submission deadlines throughout the year, and less than six months from grant submission to award.
