Robert Wood Johnson Foundation: Health Impact ProjectDeadline: April 2, 2014
The Health Impact Project, a collaboration of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and The Pew Charitable Trusts, promotes the use of Health Impact Assessments (HIAs) and related approaches to help policy-makers in a wide range of fields incorporate health considerations into new policies, programs, plans, and projects, and make decisions that reduce unnecessary health risks, improve health, and decrease costs. This call for proposals supports two types of initiatives: 1) HIA demonstration projects that inform a specific decision, with a focus on tribes, states, and territories that have had limited experience with HIAs to date; and 2) HIA program grants that enable organizations with previous HIA experience to develop sustainable HIA programs that integrate HIAs and related approaches in policy-making at the local, state, or tribal level.
Amount: Up to six Demonstration Project grants for up to $100,000 each completed within 18 months; and up to five Program Grants for up to $250,000 each completed within 24 months. Program Grants must include $100,000 in matching funds or in-kind support from the grantee or partner organizations.
Eligibility: State, tribal, or local agencies; tax-exempt educational institutions; and tax-exempt organizations as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and are not private foundations or non-functionally integrated Type III supporting organizations.
