SNAP-Ed Guidance for Local Health Departments

The Local Agency Support Section provides leadership, consultation, training and technical assistance to California’​s local health departments for SNAP-Ed (known as CalFresh Healthy Living in California) funded interventions with a focus on building community capacity to implement programs, policies and environmental supports that reinforce healthy eating and physical activity, including assistance with interpretation of allowable CalFresh Healthy Living funded activities. Staff are responsible for consultation on work plan development and intervention site selection. Staff review and approve work plans and budgets; providing consultation on nutrition education and physical activity promotion and impact outcome evaluation. They provide consultation of CalFresh Healthy Living work at local site visits and review of progress reports, providing leadership and coordination for selection of program materials and evidence based curriculum and coordination of local health department webinars. Section activities integrate with other programs and projects within the Nutrition and Physical Activity Branch and with other CalFresh Healthy Living Implementing Agencies through collaborative workgroups.
