State and local policy campaign grant funding opportunity

CSPI is leading a national advocacy initiative to secure state and local food and nutrition policies that improve public health and provide models that can be replicated and scaled. As a part of that initiative, CSPI is soliciting applications from state and local advocates to advance innovative policies to measurably improve the food environments in schools, restaurants, grocery stores, and federal, state, and local programs to support public health, especially for low-income families and communities of color.

Unhealthy food and beverages are the leading contributors to death in the United States, causing more than 600,000 premature deaths each year, primarily through heart disease, cancer, type 2 diabetes, and stroke. The typical American diet is low in fruit, vegetables, and whole grains and too high in sugar-sweetened beverages, red and processed meat, full-fat dairy, refined grains, sodium, and saturated fat.

We aim to accelerate progress toward policies that support healthy eating, ensuring that progress extends equitably across the population.
