In this cycle, 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 will be made in three categories:
- 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.
Winners will be announced in January 2020, during the 88th Winter Meeting of The United States Conference of Mayors in Washington, DC.
