SFUSD Wellness Policy Project’s Request for Qualifications

In 2016, San Francisco voters approved the Sugary Drinks Distributor Tax (SDDT) which placed a one-penny per ounce tax on distributors of sugary drinks. Revenue generated from the SDDT holds potential to change the health status of our community members most burdened by chronic diseases and the environments in which their health is shaped. Some of the resulting SDDT revenue will provide one-time funding to community organizations through this Request for Qualifications. The SFUSD Wellness Policy Project invites interested community-based organizations and faith-based organizations to respond to this request by completing an application describing  their qualifications to serve as a Lead Agency in one or more of these specific categories: Healthy Fundraising PlayBook Kit; Alternative Rewards Playbook for Students; Physical Activity Strategies and Programming; Work-Site Wellness: Role Model and Participate in Self-Care Opportunities.

Applications are due by Friday, November 1, 2019.
