Children’s Healthy Weight Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Network (CoIIN): This announcement solicits applications for a Children’s Healthy Weight Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Network (CoIIN).

The purpose of this cooperative agreement is to develop and implement a Children’s Healthy Weight CoIIN, with the goal of increasing the proportion of children and young adults ages birth to 21 years who fall within a healthy weight range by supporting states to adopt evidence-based or evidence-informed policies and practices related to nutrition, physical activity, and breastfeeding.  The Children’s Healthy Weight CoIIN will support implementation of the Title V Block Grant transformation by supporting states’ efforts to address the new National Performance Measures (NPMs) on physical activity and breastfeeding by accelerating improvement and innovation through collaborative learning to achieve the greatest collective impact at the state level.  This cooperative agreement will also support achievement of National Outcome Measure #20:  “Percent of children and adolescents who are overweight or obese (BMI at or above 85th percentile),” with the goal to reduce the proportion of children and adolescents who are considered overweight or obese.

The Children’s Healthy Weight CoIIN will gather best practices, promote evidence-based and evidence-informed strategies, and increase resources related to nutrition, physical activity, and breastfeeding to support Title V programs, enabling states to facilitate collaborative learning and adopt quality improvement principles and practices that support healthy weight behaviors.  Increased implementation of evidence-based or evidence-informed policies, programs, and practices through collaborative improvement and innovation models are expected to lead to a measureable improvement in children’s health.

The Children’s Healthy Weight CoIIN objectives/goals under this FOA will be advanced through three activity components:  (1) Establishment of a National MCHB Children’s Healthy Weight Initiative (a resource center), (2) Children’s Healthy Weight CoIIN Activities, and (3) Children’s Healthy Weight Capacity Building.

For more detailed information on program requirements and expectations in this FOA, please see the Methodology section.
