The United States Conference of Mayors (USCM), in partnership with the American Beverage Association (ABA), has announced the launch of the 2015 Childhood Obesity Prevention Grants Program.  In this round of funding, 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 given in three categories – large, medium and small city. 
  • Large City (Population of 250,000 or greater): 1st Place $150,000; 2nd Place $25,000
  • Medium City (Population between 75,000 and 250,000): 1st Place $120,000; 2nd Place $25,000
  • Small City (Population of 75,000 or smaller): 1st Place $100,000; 2nd Place $25,000
The deadline for submission of applications has passed.  Winners will be announced in January 2015, during the 83rd Conference of Mayors Winter Meeting in Washington, DC.
