State Physical Activity and Nutrition (SPAN) Program, 2023 – 2028
Seventeen states received funding to carry out CDC’s State Physical Activity and Nutrition (SPAN) program. In the five-year program (CDC-RFA-DP-23-0012), the recipients will put into action evidence-based strategies for:
- Making healthy food choices easier everywhere through the promotion of food service and nutrition guidelines and the expansion of existing fruit and vegetable voucher incentives and produce prescription programs
- Safe and accessible physical activity
- Continuity of care in breastfeeding support
- Early care and education (ECE) settings
The strategies will address health disparities related to poor nutrition, physical inactivity, and/or obesity. Recipients will leverage state investments, partnerships, and resources to support the health for all Americans, especially those most impacted by chronic diseases as well as optimal early life growth and development. The work will involve multiple sectors, such as agriculture, transportation, education, healthcare, parks/recreation, business, housing, and defense/military.
