Network for a Healthy California (Network) Invitation To Bid (ITB)

Network for a Healthy California—Nutrition Education Enhancement Pilot Project: Development of Physical Activity Integration Resources

  • On behalf of the Network for a Healthy California (Network), the Public Health Institute (PHI) is conducting an open competitive bid process to fund up to five contractor(s) to develop resources for the Network for a Healthy California¾Physical Activity Integration Program, with a total of $150,000 available through this Invitation to Bid (ITB) on February 11, 2010.  The intended outcome of this funding is for awardees to develop resources that integrate physical activity (PA) with nutrition education and can be used by the Network’s partners to increase PA levels among low-income adults in California. Awardees will develop and submit finalized resource materials by the end of the funding period

    The term of the contracts will begin on March 22, 2010 and ends September 30, 2010.  

    The mission of the Network is to create innovative partnerships that empower low-income Californians to increase fruit and vegetable consumption, physical activity and food security with the goal of preventing obesity and other diet-related chronic diseases.  The overall goal of the Network is to reform the norm which accepts the conditions that cause overweight, obesity, and sedentary lifestyles and replace it with a norm that expects fresh, healthy food and active living.  We must focus on eliminating the disparities that place low-income California families at greater risk of so many chronic diseases and empowering them to make healthy choices.  To achieve our goal, we specifically focus on increasing fruit and vegetable consumption, increasing physical activity levels, increasing food security and preventing diet-related chronic diseases.  These are the four pillars of the Network.  These in turn support the key United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) SNAP-Ed behavioral outcomes:

  • Eat fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat milk products every day;
  • Be physically active every day as part of a healthy lifestyle;
  • Balance caloric intake from food and beverages with calories expended.
  • Thank you for your interest in applying.  We look forward to receiving your final, hard copy application by March 11, 2010 by 4:00 pm.  Applicants are required to submit a non-binding, mandatory Letter of Intent (Form #5)  by 4:00 pm on March 4, 2010.
