Improving Student Health and Academic Achievement through Nutrition, Physical Activity and the Management of Chronic Conditions in Schools: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announces the availability of Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 funds to implement CDC-RFA-DP18-1801, Improving Student Health and Academic Achievement through Nutrition, Physical Activity and the Management of Chronic Conditions in Schools. This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is limited to state governments, specifically, State Education Agencies (SEAs) and their Bona Fide Agents. Approximately $7 million per year is available. The period of performance is 5 years with a 12-month budget period and an anticipated start date of June 30, 2018. The purpose of this project is to (1) Increase the number of students who consume nutritious food and beverages; (2) Increase the number of students who participate in daily physical education and physical activity; and (3) Increase the number of students who can effectively manage their chronic health conditions. There are two priority areas SEAs can apply for: Priority 1: Improving Student Health and Academic Achievement through Nutrition, Physical Activity and the Management of Chronic Health Conditions in Schools. Priority 2: National Professional Development and Training to Improve Student Health Approximately 19 SEAs will be funded to implement Priority 1 and will be responsible for implementing three strategies: Strategy 1. Infrastructure Development Strategy 2. Professional Development and Training Strategy 3. Technical Assistance SEAs will be expected to implement these strategies using a comprehensive, statewide approach over the 5-year period of performance. While activities are expected to be implemented statewide, each SEA will select between 5 and 10 Local Education Agencies (LEAs) with which to prioritize their work. SEAs should work with the majority of schools within these LEAs at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. Priority 2 Strategies One SEA will be funded to implement Priority 2 which focuses on building the capacity of Priority 1 SEAs. The recipient will plan, develop and deliver quality professional development and training to Priority 1 SEAs. The Priority 2 SEA will be responsible for implementing one strategy: Strategy 1: National Professional Development and Training Applicants seeking funding for Priority 2 must also apply for Priority 1 funding.
