FY 2019 Mid-Year Request for Applications (RFA)

The Michigan Fitness Foundation (MFF) is pleased to announce two mid-year funding opportunities for community organizations. One of the important roles of the Michigan Fitness Foundation (MFF), as a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program-Education (SNAP-Ed) Implementing Agency, is to increase the capacity of local and regional organizations to deliver effective nutrition and physical activity programming to meet local needs in underserved areas across the state and for priority underserved populations.

MFF is seeking to Build Local Capacity for organizations new to SNAP-Ed to deliver SNAP-Ed programs. MFF is also seeking organizations with SNAP-Ed experience to Enhance the Evidence Base for select promising interventions.

Building Local Capacity

MFF is seeking to collaborate with local and regional organizations on custom-designed SNAP-Ed projects that they will implement to:

  • Link direct nutrition education with policy, systems, and environmental change (PSE) interventions and
  • Use a multi-sector collaborative approach to achieve project goals and establish a foundation for sustainability and long-term implementation.

If your organization has not received SNAP-Ed funding in the last three years, this RFA may be for you!

The anticipated programming period is February 2019 – January 2020.
