Research shows universal preschool education would give all children a boost to live a healthier life. There are potentially many more supportive policies—help discover laws and regulations that would help support better community health.
Two million dollars in research funding is available through the Policies for Action call for proposals, including $500,000 for research on actionable policies that support children's healthy weight or reduce child obesity.
We seek research in health care and mental health, public health, education, the workforce, housing, criminal justice, planning and transportation, energy and the environment, technology, and transportation to better understand how each of the different sectors impact health, well-being, and equity.
