POW Update Thank you to all the states who have done an excellent job realigning their planned programs to include the 5 NIFA priorities.

Guidelines for Priorities as Planned Program Names The Program name MUST include the exact wording up front. –You may add in additional language; the following examples are correct uses of the priorities as program names: Childhood Obesity – Youth Nutrition Childhood Obesity: Youth Nutrition Childhood Obesity (Youth Nutrition) Childhood Obesity, Healthy Living, and Youth Nutrition The following examples are NOT acceptable: Youth Nutrition & Childhood Obesity Youth Nutrition (Childhood Obesity) Youth Nutrition, Healthy Living, and Childhood Obesity
