New Opportunity to Partner with the CHOICES Team in 2017

Thank you for your interest in the opportunity to work with us. The CHOICES Learning Collaborative Partnership is an opportunity for state, city, and county health agencies to partner together to examine the cost effectiveness of selected childhood obesity initiatives. The expected impact of this partnership will be to engage decision makers and promote discussion and action to ensure that more of our scarce local, state, and national public health resources are directed towards more cost-effective interventions.

Local health agencies representing one of the following three geographic areas are eligible to apply:

  • States;
  • Large Cities (with populations of 500,000 or more);
  • Large Counties (with populations of 1 million or more).

The partnership will run from July 2017 to June 2018, and the CHOICES team intends to fund up to four health agencies during this 12-month project period. Monetary assistance will be available (contingent upon funding) at an expected average of $50,000 per awardee. Note that the size of the award may vary based on project scope and awardees.

Important Dates:

  • May 31, 2017 at 5 p.m. ET – Application due
  • June 15, 2017 – Awardees notified
