As a service to our members and other public health professionals, ASTHO regularly lists opportunities for funding, capacity building, and technical assistance. Check to see if these opportunities are a good fit for you or your organization.

State/Community Collaborations for Lactation Equity

ASTHO is pleased to announce a funding opportunity to support up to five (5) BLC/CDC State Physical Activity and Nutrition (SPAN) teams in sustaining existing or implementing new transformative and community-engaged initiatives to advance breastfeeding equity. Participants will also learn how to leverage policy to bolster their projects by participating in a Policy Academy featuring web-based educational sessions, peer sharing, access to subject matter experts and customized resources, and an applied health policy project. CDC SPAN recipients who are in good standing with ASTHO are eligible to apply. Interested SPAN recipients are encouraged to select a local entity as a bona fide or fiscal agent to apply for this opportunity on their behalf. The bona fide or fiscal agent will be required to submit a letter from the SPAN recipient designating the local entity as a bona fide or fiscal agent. Please see the Request for Proposals for additional guidance and information.
