Discuss expectations for 2015 SNAP-Ed Plan submissions.
Discuss how public health approaches can enhance nutrition education.
Individual or group-based nutrition education, health promotion, and intervention strategies
Comprehensive, multi-level interventions at multiple complementary organizational institutional levels
Community and public health approaches to improve nutrition
Efforts that affect a large segment of the population rather than targeting the individual or small group.
Dietary Guidelines, smaller portion size, fewer sugary drinks, and reducing sodium are examples of public health approaches.
Policy: A written statement of an organizational position, decision, or course of action.
Systems: unwritten, ongoing, organization decisions or changes that result in new activities reaching large proportions of people the organization serves.
Environmental Change: Includes the built or physical environments which are visual/observable, but may include economic, social, normative or message environments.
SNAP-Ed providers can implement community and public health approaches that affect a large segment of the population rather than solely targeting the individual or small group.
Provide consultation and technical assistance to create PSE changes that ultimately benefit low-income households and communities.
PSE’s are more effective when paired with individual, group, and community-based strategies.
Changes should not be standalone and must support educational or marketing strategies used in SNAP-Ed.
Compensation for State level staff to plan, oversee, and/or monitor the use of SNAP-Ed funds.
Point-of-purchase or point-of-decision making signage that promotes healthy food choices or physical activity
Resource kits with strategies for PSE’s.
Preparing data reports and sharing of information.
Conducting environmental scans or assessments of the food activity environments where nutrition education is provided.
Costs associated with infrastructure, construction, or other capital improvements to retail stores, sidewalks, trails, bicycle paths, or dining facilities.
Financial incentives to community partners or retailers to support environmental or policy changes.
Salaries, license or permit fees for retail store staff, farmers market managers, or food service workers for service operations
Costs associated with refrigeration units in grocery or convenience stores.
Identify methods the State will use to notify applicants, participants, and eligible individuals to the maximum extent possible, about the availability of SNAP-Ed activities in local communities.
Cover letter that clearly states the amount of funds requested
