The Global Health Advocacy Incubator’s Healthy Food Policy Advocacy Fund is currently closed for new applications. The Advocacy Fund periodically reopens throughout the year, so please check back for future updates.

About the Advocacy Fund

The Advocacy Fund provides critical support to help advance promising legislative or regulatory efforts on healthy food policy. These policy priority areas include: taxes on sugary beverages and/or ultra-processed food, front-of-package nutrition labeling, restrictions on marketing of unhealthy food and beverages, and healthy public sector food environments, including schools. The Advocacy Fund may also be used to block harmful policies that would set negative precedents and undermine a healthy food policy environment.

The Advocacy Fund is managed by the Global Health Advocacy Incubator and supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies.

Who can apply

The Advocacy Fund provides grants to not-for-profit entities, with strong preference given to civil society organizations in low and middle-income countries. GHAI encourages joint applications from up to three groups working collaboratively toward a healthy food policy win. The applicant or co-applicants must be working on a SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, timebound) policy objective. Ideally, the objective will be achievable within a 12-24 month time frame. The policy may be national or subnational and should ideally have a broader regional or global impact.
