With funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the United States Breastfeeding Committee (USBC) is launching the Coalition Mini-Grants Program to support state/territory/tribal breastfeeding coalitions. The Coalition Mini-Grants Program will award several $500 to $3,000 grants, totaling $18,000 in funding for state, territory, and tribal breastfeeding coalitions.
The purpose of this program is to enhance the capacity of state/territory/tribal breastfeeding coalitions while ensuring that coalitions are not duplicating efforts. The mini grants will promote enhanced focus on developing innovative strategies; refining, tailoring, and replicating previously successful strategies; and sharing results widely; thereby building on the work of others to enhance protection, promotion, and support of breastfeeding across the United States.
