Help us compile a list of all federal policy that impacts play and outdoor activity!

KidsKaBOOM! needs your help!

KaBOOM! has been asked by First Lady Obama's office to quickly pull together an environmental scan of federal level vehicles that either have policy or funding implications that could expand opportunities for programs that would impact outdoor play and physical activity.

So in other words, we're looking to compile - very quickly - a list of all federal policy and appropriations that have an impact on play and physical activity.

Some examples would be:

  • No Child Left Behind-How to postion recess, physical activity and Physical Education, not just one
  • Land and Water Conservation Act
  • UPARR—Urban Park and Recreation Recovery Program
  • CDC— Department of Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity (DNPAO)

...etc.

Please post on our message board all federal policy you're aware of that has an impact on this arena. Thank you!
