The Local Agency Support Section provides leadership, consultation, training, and technical assistance to California's local health departments for SNAP-Ed funded interventions with a focus on building community capacity to implement programs, policies, and environmental supports that reinforce healthy eating and physical activity, including assistance with interpretation of allowable SNAP-Ed funded activities. Staff are responsible for consultation on work plan development and intervention site selection. Staff review and approve work plans and budgets; providing consultation on nutrition education and physical activity promotion, and impact outcome evaluation. They provide consultation of SNAP-Ed work at local site visits and review of progress reports, providing leadership and coordination for selection of program materials and evidence based curriculum, and coordination of local health department webinars. Section activities integrate with other programs and projects within NEOPB and with other SNAP-Ed State Implementing Agencies through collaborative workgroups.
