4. Expand Nutrition Education and Physical Activity Programs for Children and Their Families

Grants must be used for programs that provide nutrition education and physical activity services to CalOptima members ages 0–18 (youth) and their families to promote healthy lifestyles, healthy nutrition and exercise. For example, programs may be delivered in a school-based and/or other trusted community setting, can include education to the entire family and can use community health workers/promotoras to deliver services. Programs must include outreach and education to promote awareness of and connect CalOptima members to the services being provided. Funds are for non-Medi-Cal contracted services and may not be used as reimbursement for Medi-Cal covered services.
