Funding is available for the development and/or improvement of public health outreach and education programs to inform people about ways to prevent diseases like asthma, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, HIV/AIDS, and others, insofar as these programs involve physical, nutritional, or dietary regimens.

How to Apply

The Kahn-Oppenheim Fund accepts only electronic application submissions through the Foundation’s online portal.
