The United States Conference of Mayors (USCM), in partnership with the American Beverage Foundation for a Healthy America (ABFHA), has launched the 2017 Childhood Obesity Prevention Grants Program. 
In 2017, the fifth year of the program, six cities will share a total of $445,000 in grant awards, to support both new and existing programs initiated by USCM member mayors that address the childhood obesity epidemic in America's cities.

Awards are made in three categories - small, medium and large city.
  • Small City (Population less than 75,000): 2nd Place $25,000; 1st Place $100,000 
  • Medium City (Population between 75,000 and 250,000): 2nd Place $25,000; 1st Place $120,000
  • Large City (Population greater than 250,000): 2nd Place $25,000; 1st Place $150,000

The deadline for submission of applications is 11:59pm on Wednesday, August 31, 2016.  Winners will be announced in January 2017, during the 85th Winter Meeting of The United States Conference of Mayors in Washington, DC.
