The Missouri Foundation for Health Healthy and Active Communities (H&AC) program targets community-based organizations with the specific objective of reaching populations who are at increased risk of developing obesity, such as women and children, racial and ethnic groups, and low-income individuals or families. We have been pleased to learn that the MFH will allow MU to apply to this program via our School of Medicine Foundation. 

Project plans must be framed around one or more of the following goals:

Goal 1: Increase the proportion of adults, adolescents or children who implement sound principles toward achieving and/or maintaining a healthy weight, which includes healthy eating, regular physical activity and positive behavioral strategies.

Goal 2: Increase the proportion of community coalitions, faith-based organizations or local and state health agencies that provide community education on the importance of good nutrition, physical activity and healthy weight.

Goal 3: Increase community access to physical activity opportunities and healthful foods.

Goal 4: Develop or strengthen collaborative efforts to implement local public policies that promote physical activity and healthy eating.

Because MU’s School of Medicine Foundation is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 5:00 pm Monday, March 20, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to a 2-page summary of the proposed program.

Amount: up to $150,000 per year for two years
MU Deadline: 5:00 p.m., Monday, March 20, 2006 (letter of intent)
