Two UNM Centers Partner to Study Access to Nutrition

Our team is excited to announce that we have been awarded a two-year research grant funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The University of New Mexico Cradle to Career Policy Institute (CCPI) and Envision New Mexico 2.0 under the Department of Pediatrics at the UNM Health Sciences Center have partnered to study home-based child care providers’ access to the federal Child and Adult Care Food Program. Combining CCPI’s experience doing research and policy work with Envision’s expertise in childhood nutrition and health, the team will undertake a two-year effort to analyze state data on which providers and children in New Mexico have access to the food program, and to use survey and focus groups methods to ask home-based care providers about their experiences with the food program and the policies that help or hinder their participation. We hope findings from this research will help policymakers nationwide adopt and implement policies that support equitable access to nutrition supports.
