Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) – Policies for Action: Policy and Law Research to Build a Culture of Health – 2018 not announced yet

Date Due: 03/10/17 (dates for 2018 not announced yet)

Amount: $250,000

Summary: Policies for Action: Policy and Law Research to Build a Culture of Health (P4A) was created to help build the evidence base for policies that can help build a Culture of Health. P4A seeks to engage long-standing health care, mental and behavioral health, and public health researchers, as well as experts in areas that we recognize have strong influence on health, well-being and equity—such as labor, criminal justice, education, transportation, housing, and the built environment.

The research funded under this call for proposals (CFP) should help fill significant gaps in our knowledge about what policies can serve as positive drivers of change, including how the social determinants of health can be used to achieve improvements in population health, well-being, and equity. Additional information on this program can be found at policiesforaction.org.
