Purpose: The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is interested in advancing efforts that will support, sustain, and evolve the work of organizations and communities that have been at the forefront of equity-oriented childhood obesity prevention. The call for proposals seeks projects with the potential to support, sustain, and evolve the field in promoting systems-level change to prevent childhood obesity, address structural racism, and advance health equity.
Receipt Date: October 24, 2024
Total Awards: The program will distribute up to $22 million in funding. The number of awards will depend on the budgets of selected projects; RWJF anticipates making up to six awards of varying sizes. Each award will be a minimum of $1,000,000.
Eligibility: • Eligible applicants must have the organizational infrastructure that demonstrates sufficient capacity and history to conduct proposed efforts in a timely, well-managed way that leads to desired outcomes.
• Eligible applicants must be based in the United States or its territories.
• Awards will be made to organizations, not individuals.
• Applicants may include but are not limited to nonprofit, private sector, and government organizations; local or state-based philanthropy and intermediary/backbone organizations; academia; professional membership organizations; and community-based state, and national advocacy organizations or coalitions. The Foundation may require additional documentation to confirm that eligibility requirements have been met.
• We encourage projects that engage and center communities most impacted by structural racism and other systems of oppression; partnerships spanning state and community-level organizations; and entities that have not applied or been awarded a grant from RWJF previously.
• We encourage partnerships and collaborations. Two or more organizations may partner to develop and implement a concept/proposal. While each collaborating organization must be described in detail in the proposal, only one organization can be the lead contact in the application process and may engage the other organization(s) through a subcontract or grant.
• We encourage applicant organizations that are led by or that reflect the leadership of Black or African American; American Indian, Alaska Native, or Indigenous; Hispanic, Latinx/e, or Latin American; Middle Eastern or North African; Asian or Asian American; and/or Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander communities and those from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Hispanic-serving Institutions, Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs), Alaska Native-Serving Institutions, Native Hawaiian-Serving Institutions, and Asian American Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions (AANAPISIs).
• Preference will be given to applicants 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. The Foundation may require additional documentation.
