Current Grants and Projects

The Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity Program provides grants to local groups when funds are available.  The funds are used to help implement the Wisconsin Nutrition and Physical Activity State Plan to accomplish the overall goal of preventing obesity and chronic disease.

Wisconsin CHANGE for Healthy Communities

In October 2012, the Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity (NPAO) Program at the Wisconsin Division of Public Health awarded grants for community coalitions and partnership groups. The Wisconsin CHANGE for Healthy Communities (WCHC) Project is funding 12 Wisconsin communities at approximately $10,000 for assessment, partnership building, and action planning.
