Move Your Way is an initiative of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to promote the physical activity guidelines and help people live healthier lives through increased physical activity. The Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) is looking to expand our Move Your Way activities to those that help keep our youth active and healthy.
We are looking specifically to partner with schools, places of faith or other organizations that work with youth or parents of youth to promote physical activity and raise awareness of the physical activity guidelines for youth. Because some populations are less active than others and some have fewer opportunities for physical activity, special consideration will be given to applications that propose to work with Asian and Pacific Islander, Black or African American, or Hispanic or Latino youth or their parents and guardians.
Applicants may request up to $1,000 in sponsorship support for their proposed program, activity or event. The proposed program, activity, or event does not need to be new. You can apply for the sponsorship to expand or enhance an existing program, activity or event by incorporating the Move Your Way elements addressed above and by using the funding to expand your existing programs to reach additional audiences including priority populations listed above.
If the funding is used to support existing programs, activities or events, you must indicate how the program, activity or event will be expanded using the sponsorship funding. This could include adding a new element or component to the program, serving a new population, or adding additional sessions or events to the existing program.
To be eligible for a Move Your Way – Youth Sponsorship your organization must:
Only one application per organization will be accepted.
