Robert Wood Johnson Foundation: Health and Climate SolutionsDeadline: February 8, 2019
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) seeks to develop and amplify the evidence around a set of approaches that improve community health and well-being and advance health equity, while also addressing climate change, adaptation, or mitigation. Eligible, local approaches can focus on one or more of a range of determinants of health, including (but not limited to):
- Air quality
- Energy sources
- Transportation or mobility design
- Food and water systems
- Health systems
Proposals should specify the determinants of health that the given approach is addressing, and the expected impact on health and well-being. Grant funds will support research and evaluation activities to develop the best possible evidence highlighting what is working well with the select approach and why; where there have been opportunities and challenges; and how other communities may learn from this approach to tackle similar challenges.
Amount: Up to eight grants that range up to $350,000 each will be awarded for a project duration of up to 24 months.
Eligibility: Public and private nonprofit organizations; federally or state-recognized Indian tribal governments; Indigenous organizations; local government; and academic institutions. Preference will be given to applicant organizations that are either public entities or nonprofit organizations that are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and are not private foundations or Type III supporting organizations.
Note: All interventions must have been implemented and active for at least one year as of the date of the application. Grant funds will support only research and evaluation activities and some communication and dissemination efforts; funds may not be used to develop or implement a new intervention, program, or approach.
