New 2024 Call for Proposals: Systems & Services Research to Address Systemic Racism


The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has released a new research funding opportunity through the Systems for Action Research Program as of December 13th, 2023. This year’s funding opportunity will award studies rigorously testing innovative approaches of helping medical, social and public health systems work together to dismantle systemic racism and address the health and social needs of people experiencing health inequities. Each study supported by the S4A program must examine a novel approach to systems alignment that engages partners from medical care, public health, and social services systems in collaborative efforts to dismantle structural and systemic racism and improve health equity. This 2024 Call for Proposals will provide funding for a new cohort of research studies to produce new, actionable evidence for aligning across the three systems to address systemic racism.
