Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories organizations and agencies for research on the effect of Coronavirus (COVID-19) recovery and relief programs on children. Applicants must submit a Letter of Intent prior to submitting a full proposal. Funding is intended for projects that explore the impact of COVID-19-related relief and recovery policies on children's health and well-being.

HER is interested in understanding how social and economic programs and policies related to poverty reduction—such as financial payments to families, income assistance programs, housing assistance or housing security programs, and increased access to social services—impact child obesity, diet quality, food security, and other relevant child and family health outcomes among lower-income and families of color.

Studies must focus on children and families in the United States, with high priority on those who are at highest risk for poor nutrition and obesity, specifically lower-income families and racially and ethnically diverse populations (e.g., Black, Latinx, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander). Evidence generated through this special solicitation should be timely and policy-relevant, and aimed towards identifying equitable policies and programs. 

Grant funds may be used for project staff salaries, consultant fees, data collection and analysis, meetings, supplies, project-related travel, and other direct project expenses, including a limited amount of equipment essential to the project. If the grantee is a public charity, funds may also be used to cover indirect costs to support the applicant’s general operations.
