Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Grants Available for Work to Improve Health Equity

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s (RWJF) Systems for Action program has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for research that supports new scientific evidence on ways to optimize delivery and financing systems in ways that improve health equity and reduce inequities.

In 2018, the program will award up to six grants of up to $250,000 over four years. Letters of Intent must be received no later than September 12, 2018.

Systems for Action (S4A) aims to discover and apply new evidence about ways of aligning the delivery and financing systems for medical, social, and public health services that support a Culture of Health. S4A uses a wide research lens that includes and extends beyond medical care and public health systems to include other sectors that affect health and well-being, such as housing, transportation, social services, education, criminal and juvenile justice, and economic and community development.

More information and the complete RFP can be found on the RWJF website. Contact: Donna Evans
