Healthy Kids, Healthy Communities. A Progress Report

This progress report was prepared by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation as the Healthy Kids, Healthy Communities reaches its midway point in the grant.  Healthy Kids, Healthy Communities: Supporting Community Action to Prevent Childhood Obesity is helping 49 community partnerships across the nation promote changes to local policies and the physical environment that foster healthy living and prevent childhood obesity. The program places special emphasis on reaching children who are at highest risk for obesity based on their race or ethnicity, income, or geographic location. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) launched the national program in December 2007, and authorized it for up to $33.4 million through December 2013. Funded projects must provide a 50 percent match over the funding period, which can include both cash and in-kind support. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill houses the national program office. Sarah L. Strunk, MHA, directs the program.
