Applications are invited for competitive grant awards from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to support research on behavioral economic strategies to promote healthy eating and obesity prevention.
The findings from successful proposals are expected to advance USDA?s effort to
ensure a healthy, well nourished population.
USDA?s Economic Research Service (ERS) anticipates awarding up to eight individual grants.
The maximum funding level, including indirect costs, per grant is $30,000 for the duration of the agreement, not to exceed three years.
