FY24 SNAP-Ed Services (2023-2024)

Grants and Contracts Details

Description

Abstract Proposed projects address nutrition education and obesity prevention needs of low- income target populations through direct education, indirect intervention channels, and advocacy for policy, systems and environment (PSE) changes to improve nutrition and physical activity practices. The proposed projects will serve the target audience in all 120 Kentucky counties. The University of Kentucky’s Nutrition Education Program will continue to apply the social ecological framework for nutrition and physical activity decisions to address nutrition and physical activity at all levels of the model – individual, environmental, sectors of influence, and social and cultural norms and values. Consistent evaluation will provide data for curricula improvement, staff training, and field implementation of the proposed projects. The 2024 plan includes three proposed projects from the University of Kentucky.
