Posted by US Department of Agriculture on May 19, 2014

The US Department of Agriculture is accepting proposals from public and private institutions of higher education for a grant to research behavioral economics and its influence on healthier food choices. This research aligns with further USDA funded research from the Cornell Center for Behavioral Economics in Child Nutrition Programs. The focus populations will be those receiving SNAP or WIC funds. The goal is to figure out the factors that would facilitate healthy and cost effective food choices. Applications are due by June 30, 2014. Click here to read the grant announcement.
